Party Game Central



A kids game where you'd better do what Simon says or else. Follow the leaders silly actions but beware!

Game type:

Active. A lot of movement may be required.


4 or more players




One player is the leader or the 'simon' and orders the other players to make motions by saying "Simon says" and then an action. For example they might say "Simon says thumbs up", "Simon says hands on your head" or "Simon says jump up and down." The leader also makes all of these motions. If he omits the "Simon says" part, however, and just orders "Thumbs up" or "Jump up and down", the players must not make the motion. Anyone who does so is out of the game. The winner is the player who remains in the game the longest.

Step up version:

In another version, the "simon" can stand about 5 feet in front of the group which is lined up in a straight line. Each time someone messes up, the others move forward a step. Eventually it will be whittled down to one person and they get to be the next simon.
