Games & Icebreakers, Up-Front Games

TP 500


Ask for 3—4 volunteers from the audience. Each volunteer then chooses a partner to help them. All the players will have a roll of toilet paper tied around their waist, hanging from their back side, (use a piece of rope or twine 18-24” long that ties through a belt loop and then through the TP roll). The players start at the front of the room. Their partner is their ‘spotter’ – they have to hold the end of the TP. When the game begins the students will race around the room. The object of the game is to empty the toilet paper roll while running. Players can run around any person/ obstacle they like. If (when) the toilet paper rips they have to run back to the spotter and have them hold the end of the TP again, (only the spotter can hold the TP end. Spotters hold the TP without pulling it in towards them). Running without breaking the TP is tricky: you can’t run too fast or it just rips immediately. When the 1st player empties their roll completely – he/she becomes the spotter and their partner races around the room until their roll is empty. The first team with both their rolls emptied wins the game. Give a prize away to the winning team.
