Heads or Tails

3.5 stars

A very simple game for all group sizes.  Have everyone stand up and either put their hands on their heads or their 'tail'.  

Flip a coin and announce what side the coin lands on:

  • If it lands on heads, everyone with their hands on their heads is out and must sit down
  • If it lands on tails, everyone with their hands on their tail is out and must sit down. 

Everyone who is left then chooses again whether they put their hands on their heads or tails. This continues until there is one person left who is the winner!  

(If there are two people left, they must choose different ends so there is a winner).

If you are playing with a big group, make a giant sized novelty coin to flip so everyone can see the result!
