Elf, Giant, Magician
|Time:||approx. 3-5 minutes|
|Recommended age:||all ages|
|Size of group:||2 persons are playing against|
|Time for preparation:||none|
This game is similar to Rock-Paper-Scissors. The group divides itself into pairs that stand opposite each other. On the leaders command, the couples must assume positions to show the character and they must also make the sounds of that character. Each character has a specific sound.
- Elf: assume a squatting position and holds hands with index fingers pointing upwards to resemble elf ears. The elf sound is “eeeeking –eeeeking…”
- Giant: stand on tip-toes and cross arms in front of chest. The giants sound is a deep bellowing tone.
- Magician: stands in a normal position with arms outstretched and uses a secretive, poetic voice to say his spells.
Who wins? What happens next?
An elf hits the magician by shooting an arrow at him. The magician makes a dramatic fall clutching his heart (where he was shot).
The magician hits the Giant who “shrinks” while making shrinking noises, like a balloon losing air.
The giant hits the elf while pretending he is very small.
