Pass under the limbo stick without touching it!

Game type:

Active. A lot of movement may be required.


6 or more players


Limbo stick Try using a string of twinkle lights, a strand of sparkly garland, a bamboo pole, a flashlight (lights out), or any item to match your theme for your limbo stick


The young and the young at heart always enjoy the classic beach game of \"limbo\". Two players hold up a limbo stick (usually a broom handle), and the rest of the players form a line and pass under it. Players are not allowed to touch the limbo stick, and they cannot have any body part but their feet touch the floor. At first this is easy, but after each player has gone under once, lower the limbo stick before the players pass through again. The game continues this way, with the limbo stick being lowered each time. If a player accidentally touches the limbo stick or the floor, he\'s out. The last player left doing the limbo wins.


1. For a fun variation on the game, make it a little more challenging by adding a \"Super Stomach\" to guests as they take their turn. Have a couple of oversized shirts, and some fluffy pillows on hand.

2. While doing the Limbo, you may want to play the song \"The Limbo Rock by Chubby Checker or something from the beach boys etc.
