Back to Back

This is the game where you start out with two people sitting back to back and they have to stand straight up without using their hands. Add one person every time they stand up successfully. Our record is ten!

    We played this game girls vs boys – the boys definitely had the strength, stamina, and strategy to beat the giggling gerties 13 to 7! Lots of laughs and some great photos.
