Fishes

This is a fun game for a group of girls of any size. I learnt it today so I’m sorry if the rules are a bit dodgy! It can be adapted to any theme e.g. chocolate, animals, food etc. 

Girls sit on chairs in a circle, facing outwards, and are named after fish, e.g. Cod, salmon, plaice, cod, salmon, plaice etc. When their fish is called, they have to run around the circle, until ‘stormy seas’ is shouted, at which point they return to their seat. Removal of chairs enables girls to get ‘out’ and hence to have a winner. 

Fun other things to shout: 

  • All the fish – everyone runs
  • Whirlwind – girls have to spin around the circle
  • Tides turning – change directions
