This is the most popular games that through the earth. It also known as musical chairs.
I just couldn’t understand why they called that way since the chairs being used in the game are not actually playing music. ^_^ So I rather call it “Trip ti Jerusalem”.
Anyway, whatever it is called, I am sure it is a fun game and easy to play as well.
This can be participated by people of different ages but just make sure that little kids won’t be hurt when bigger children are playing together with the small ones.
Here is how to play the game:
Step 1. The game starts with any number of players and a number of chairs one fewer than the number of players. In other words, if you have 10 players who are participating the game, you must have only 9 chairs to use. If you 6 players, then you use 5 chairs.
Step 2. Arranged in a circle or oval formation facing outward, with the people standing in a circle just outside of that.
Step 3. Ask somebody to play a recorded music or a musical instrument. While the music is playing, the players in the circle walk in one direction around the chairs.
Step 4. When the music player suddenly stops the music, everyone must race to sit down in one of the chairs. The player who is left without a chair is eliminated from the game.
Step 5. Removed one chair to ensure that there will always be one fewer chair than the number of players are players.
Step 6. Resume the music and the process repeats until there is only one player left in the game, who is the winner.
When down to the last two players the chair may be moved as long as the music has stopped before the chair has been touched.
