Game Instructions

The aim of the game is to be the player who stays in the game the longest.

You need at least 5 players for this game to work. Choose a leader. The leader should come up with a key word and tells it to the group. It can be anything. Then all players lie on their backs.

The leader shouts out "Fire on the mountain!" All the players respond with "Fire!" but stay lying down. Then the leader shouts out "Fire on the river!" Again the players reply with "Fire" but do not jump up. This continues on with the leader changing the last word of the phrase. He tries to think of as many different places for the fire.

The leader is able to shout out the key word at any time, as part of the phrases or in between them. When he shouts it out the players must all jump up. The last one to jump up is out of the game.

The winner is the player who stays in the game the longest.
