A combination of charades and red rover. This game is active and relys on fun improvisation!
Divide the group into two teams. Determine a playing area in the shape of a rectangle. Decide on two safety lines, one on each end of the retangle. One is the safety line fo team A and the other for team B. Team A are the actors and team B are the guessers. The actors decide on a geographical location (a country) and a related occupation (painter, policeman, baker etc.). Dialogue between A and B goes like this and can be yelled:
A: Here we come.
B: Where from?
A: From another land
B: What's your name?
B: What's your trade?
A: Goes like this.
At this point group A acts out their occupation. Group B is given 3 tries to guess. If the guess is correct, group A must run to their safety line without being touched by a group B player. If all 3 guesses are wrong group B must run to their safety line without being touched by a group A player. Any player touched must switch teams.
