BOM BOM BOM


Objective:

A mix of charades and tag where one team must guess the occupation of the other team and the chase them back to home base.

Game type:

Active. A lot of movement may be required.

Players:

6 or more players

Needed:

None

Rules:

Divide the group into two equal teams. Choose a team captain for each team. Each team must determine a home base which can be a location (the driveway, the porch) or an object (the car or street light etc.). Decide which team will go first. The chosen team then huddles and chooses an occupation to act out. Examples might be a painter, pilot, dishwasher, cowboy etc. See below for more ideas. Once this has been done and the actions for the charade discussed, the teams then approach each other and the chosen team to begins the game with the following yell:

Team 1: "Bom, Bom, Bom...Here we come...All the way from Washington."
Team 2: "Where'd you come from?"
Team 1: "Pretty girls' station!"
Team 2: "What's your occupation?"
Team 1: "Almost anything!"
Team 2: "Get to work!"

Team 1 then begins acting out the charade and Team 2 tries to guess. Any member can guess. The captain of Team 1 answers the guesses either by saying yes or no or you’re getting warm, you’re getting closer, you’re getting colder etc. If the correct guess is made, Team 2 tries to catch the members of Team 1 before Team 1 can
run back to their home base.

Winning:

If Team 1 can get back to their home base with no members being tagged, then they get to act again. If any members of team 1 get tagged then team 2 gets to act out the next time and the game starts all over.
