How to Play: Musical Chairs
How to play: The chairs are arranged in a circle, facing outwards, with the players standing outside of the circle. Once the music starts, players begin walking around the circle. When the music stops, the players must sit in a chair as fast as they can. The person left standing is out of the game, one more chair is removed and the game continues.
The rules: Any pushing or shoving by players to get to a chair when the music stops will result in that player leaving the game.
How to win: Be the last person left sitting.
What else you need to know: Chairs also can be set up back to back, forming a double line, facing outwards. In another variation, you can play this game without chairs – the last person to sit down on the ground or floor is eliminated.
