Game description

Chairs are set up in a row back to back. Players walk around the chairs in a circle. When the music stops, players must take place on a chair. The player without a chair is out of the game. Another stool is removed for the next round. This goes on until there is only one stool and two players. The winner is the player who gets the last stool.


More than one player can be on a chair. After every round, a chair is taken away. The goal is the group can find room on the leftover chairs and the group reaches it’s goal together. The game is over as soon as a player can not find a spot on a chair. Purpose: only together can the goal be reached through togetherness and holding on to one another. Sturdy chairs must be used in order to hold 6-8 players.


the player who gets the last stool is the winner. In the alternative game, the group to seat the most players on the least stools wins.
