I'd say it's a tie between Risk and Monopoly.

The National Building museum has an exhibit called The Beach...they created an ocean of those balls in the museum. They're all white, but I could totally ninja in and steal those for our game. I'll work up a plan tonight.

I don't remember the name but there's poker type chips and you guess what card best suits the person whose turn it is. Then the person puts them in order of least to most. Players get the number of chips they got and the most chips win.

Ninja, Psychiatrist, Sharks & Minnows, and Heroes and Villains. All of these games are physical games, and I'm pretty sure that these names are not the official names.

For Ninja, you pretty much have as much people try to "slice" someone's hand off using only 1 move. To start the game, we all huddle around in a small circle with our two hands together, yell out ninja, and jump to our positions.

You go clockwise or counterclockwise, but once someone "slices" both of your hands off, you're out.

Sharks & Minnows is like tag but much more difficult. You need a very large space to play this, and some people will volunteer to be sharks, while the rest will be minnows. The shark's need to tag as many people possible before the minnows make it

to the other side. Eventually, there will be more sharks than there are minnows, and that's when the fun begins. Last person standing wins.

07/25/15 4:18 pm

Heroes & Villains is a game you play in the dark in a very large space with lots of room for hiding and running. Long story short, it's a hide and go seek game that is more intense, dangerous, and fun. Another difference is that you stick with

group at first, and the Villains will try to take you out one by one. The more people that play, the better.
