Snatch

This is a great game for energising a team, a workshop, or party.
You'll need a strip of paper for every player - get a newspaper or flip chart, and tear off pieces about a foot long and 2 or 3 inches wide. Appoint a timekeeper.

Ask your players to form two teams. Give everyone a strip of paper each, which they must hold in one hand, in a clenched fist with the paper hanging down. The objective is to grab as many pieces of paper as possible from the opposing team.

Tell the teams to get into a huddle and work out a strategy, for a minute. Then kick the game off. They get 5 minutes to go mad, dash around and grab as many strips as they can.

If your strip of paper is taken, you are "out". Officially this is when no more than a fistful of paper is hanging below where you're holding it - but it's not too important. If you are "out" you must stop playing and sit down.
You may not hide the strip of paper by holding it behind your back.

The winners are the team with the most strips of paper at the end.

The instructions mention newspaper, and I think you are indeed less likely to get a pape rcut from that than from copy machine paper, for instance. Sounds like this game is worth a try.

sounds like you can get a paper cut. maybe it could work if were like touch foot ball where you have to wear the strip on you instead.

I run a childrens party disco business and am going to give this a try tomorrow - probably better if you have a lot of sapce though - then they can really let off steam.
Thanks
