Bigger and Better

This game is best when played by teenagers who do not mind carrying large items over some distance.

GET READY
Divide people at your party into groups of around four or five. Give each group something like a pencil, Crayola marker, or plastic cup.

GO
Instruct the groups to roam the neighbourhood, knocking on doors, and asking the neighbours if they would trade something bigger and better for the pencil, marker or cup.

Groups should continue to trade for an allotted amount of time when everyone will gather at the host's home to compare goods.

You could end up bringing home things like a bicycle, a couch, or an old set of golf clubs!

A great ice breaker teen party game. One person is sent out of the room and the others select one person to the leader. The leader then starts performing a silly action like wiggling their tongue or scratching their nose of which everyone has to follow suit. At this point the other player is called back to the room. The other players continue the action until the leader switches to something else and then they too must immediately follow suit. The aim of the single player is to catch who is the leader. He only has two guesses. It's very funny to watch especially if the leader continually changes actions and the poor observer is frantically turning round and round to try and spot him.

Sounds really fun, but all my neighbors are old and posh, so I don't think we could get anything that great, its also freezing outside and carrying something big will completely freeze my hand off!!! (as no one likes to where gloves for their 13th birthday)
