Eyeball Tag

Eyeball Tag

Not all tag games are equal, and Eyeball Tag is my all-time favorite. This game does not need athletic prowess and quick hands to be successful, but rather great timing mixed with courage and bravery.

Number of Participants: 5-25
Time:  5-10 minutes
Activity Level:  Moderate
Props:  Chairs

Objective: To make eye contact with another seated participant and then switch seats without the person in the middle sitting in your chair.

Set Up:
Each participant gets a chair and the group arranges the chairs in a circle. The facilitator or a volunteer does not have a chair and stands in the middle of the circle.

The object of this activity is to switch chairs with another participant after making eye contact with them. If two participants make eye contact, they stand up and move to each other’s chairs as quickly as possible. If the facilitator in the middle sees the participants moving, they will try to sit in an open chair. If successful, the participant in the middle assumes their role and tries to find an open chair. Play this as quickly as possible with as many people switching chairs as they dare.

Facilitator Notes:

  • Make sure your chairs are solid and secure. This game gets lively, and you do not want your chairs to break.
  • Be sure to let your participants know that safety is the number one priority.
  • It is often best to make this game a “walking” activity if your group is a little on the dangerous side.
