Party Game Central



A group game where the group creates the optical illusion of juggling a large number of balls.

Game type:

Active. A lot of movement may be required.


2 to 6 players


Three or four balls such as raquet balls or tennis balls Bean bags can be used as well


Have the group stand in a circle. Determine a throwing pattern around the circle. For example, 1 throws to 4 who throws to 2 who throws to 5 who throws to 3 who throws to 1 again. Start with one ball and practice the pattern. After the group has mastered one ball, introduce a second ball by having two people start throwing at the same time. Then move on to three, four five up to however many people there are in the group. Once you have a large number of balls being juggled it creates the illusion of a very complex feat!

Topics for discussion:

How could the group help each other to keep all the balls moving? Does talking to each other help?
