Audience Games, Big Room Games, Games & Icebreakers

Tape Head


I Need a Shoelace with a twist; can be played with small or huge groups. The up-front person divides teams (in audiences of rallies or other large gatherings you can make each section of chairs a group).

The upfront person then yells out a demand for a somewhat common item that people might have on them. The first team to bring up that item wins that round. Have each team elect ONE team leaders who will wear a hat with tape all over it on their head. Teams must stick the items called for to the hat to remain there until the end of the game.


I need a…

    • shoelace
    • student body card
    • nail file
    • chewed gum
    • sock with a hole in it
    • movie stub ticket
    • Driver’s License
    • quarter older than 1980
    • hairbrush

Also, see I Need a Shoelace, Move Right If, & Sit Down If, all on Audience page and Velcro Head on the Up-front page.

    Worked perfectly when I used it to kill time at a concert we hosted. Kids loved it. We gave prizes to the entire group of winners (free soda in the back). If you can, try to add that. It helps!
