This is a swimming pool classic.
In Chicken, you need at least 4 players, but it can be as many as you want as long as it’s an even number. Have all the players pair up, with one sitting on the shoulders of the other. (Duh! Make sure that girls are ONLY sitting on the shoulders of other girls!!)
When the game leader says go, it’s every team for themselves. The team’s objective is to knock the other teams over. The last pair standing is the winner.
NOTE: Be safe!
Make sure to play this in an area AWAY from the sides of the pool. You don’t want somebody crashing their head into the concrete rim!
Also, you may want to have a couple of adult leaders walking through the fray to make sure nobody gets pinned down under water (if you have a really big group.)
