Same as “Rock-Scissors-Paper”, only you use your whole body. Play it up huge, having someone demonstrate each:
Ninja: guy in karate stance yelling “waaaaa!”
Gun: hold finger gun and say “BANG!”
Gorilla: arms in air & beating chest, saying “ooo, ooo, ahh, ahh, ahh!”
“Ninja beats gun.
Gun beats gorilla.
Gorilla beats ninja.
If there’s a tie, you die!”
Keep going until all are eliminated; fun to find a champ. It helps to have the students who are out to go to the outside and the people still playing in the middle.
