Zip Zap Boing

People sit round in a circle.

One person begins by looking in a direction and saying 'zip' the next person then says zip and it continues round in a circle.

The next command is boing (difficult to type, as in the sound a spring makes.) This changes the direction of the zip and so it continues back round in the opposite direction.

Finally Zap. Zap throws the 'zip' across the circle. The person who says zap points to who they want to have the zip. The receiver then looks in the direction they wish to continue play and the zip moves on.

Here comes the fun part!

You can't boing a boing, you can't zap a zap, you can't boing a zap or zap a boing you can only zip a zap and zip a boing! Simple right?

Fantastically fun game once people have mastered it!

I do it with Year 5 and 6 drama students and they love it. I call it 'Lightning Bolt'. I haven't used the words and so will add that next time. A good drama warm-up game as it establishes focus and requires eye-contact.

It's not really confusing, it's just worded badly. A boing or a zap must be followed by a zip. Simple. I'm a drama teacher and i assure you this game is great fun for any age! ANY AGE!

Zip - Zap - Boing - Rip!!!
Clone is a zip in both directions from you at once. This doubles the action and you have to look both ways. It lets more get involved at the same time so is good for larger groups. With too many clones it gets really hectic - I think a "bust" would be a good to calm it down - but not tried this one yet.

I Love This Game! We Do It At Drama, And Use Electricity, Mexican Wave And Whoosh! Electricity Is When The Person Says "Electricity" And It Goes Rouing The Circle Like A Current, Untill Some One Says "Power Off" And Does The Motion Of Switching Off A Light Switch. Mexican Wave Is What It Says And You Stop It By Saying "Mexican Stop!" Whoosh Is Where Someone Throws An Invisable Ball Into The Air Saying "Whoosh!" And It Is Left For SomeOne Else Randomly To Catch It. But If Two People Catch The Whoosh At The Same Time, They're Out!

I know a variation of this game called bonk bonk woosh. You play with an imaginary ball which is passed around the circle. Woosh keeps the ball moving in the same direction. Bonk stops the ball and bounces it back. You have to use the palm of your hands to play the ball, you cannot woosh to your right with your right hand. Once bonking and wooshing is good you can add in the sports to pass the ball across the circle. Pass = touchdown. Shoot = swish. Kick = Gooaaaallll. Clack = Fore! Shot = saave (shaking their hand like they caught a hockey puck). Phzzzzz = (finger like a hook in their mouth) eah eah eah.

Game is best with 4-6 players, and 6 is pushing it.
