A Cold Wind Blows

3.5 stars

Similar to musical chairs or "Have you ever", this game involves the group sitting around on chairs in a circle. There should be one less chairs than there are people, leaving one person standing in the middle of the circle. 

The person in the middle begins a sentence with the words "A cold wind blows..." and then describes an attribute that refers to one or more players.

For example:

"A cold wind blows for anyone who is wearing red"

"A cold wind blows for anyone who has blonde hair"

"A cold wind blows for anyone who plays basketball"

Anyone sitting who fits in this category has to jump up and quickly find a new vacant chair. The person who was in the middle is also looking to sit in a vacant a chair, and whomever is left standing without a chair becomes the new person in the middle.

The game continues for as long as people are enjoying playing.
