Buzz Fizz

3 stars

Separate the group into groups of 10 (or there abouts depending on the size of your group). They have to count from 1 to 50 as a group. However, the catch is that at all multiples of five they must say "Buzz!" and at all multiples of seven and at any number that also contains the name seven, they must say "Fizz!". If the group messes up, they have to start over again. As the groups finish, have them stand up and cheer.

For your reference (don't use this while playing the game):
Buzz Numbers 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50
Fizz Numbers 7, 14, 17, 21, 27, 28, 35, 37, 42, 47, 49

The Fizz Numbers are incomplete. According to the rules, 17, 27, 37, & 47 should also be Fizz numbers.
