"The Triangle Game"

Very simple game. You need at least 4 players (but more is better), and a large open space (indoor or out).

  1. Every player stands up.
  2. Every player secretly and randomly chooses 2 other players from the group.
  3. On “Go”, each player has to try and form an equilateral triangle with the two people they have chosen.
  4. The game is over when either nobody has to move anymore, or a predetermined time limit has passed.

An alternative way of expressing “equilateral triangle” is “move to you are the same distance from both the people you have chosen, as they are from each other”.

More fun then it sounds, and good for several rounds.

My thanks to Roger for suggesting this, even if it was in a different context.
