Lists of games
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The following articles contain lists of games, by type of game:
- The Give Game - a game played in the swimming pool, in which people float on the beach ball, floatie or any other blow-up object and they must for as long as they can to see if they or the object gives. If the player falls off unintentionally, the ball doesn't give and they earn a point but if the player doesn't give or nobody gives, they lose a point and they're automatically eliminated from the game. Whoever gives and stays on the longest wins. Plus, everyone playing must repeat the phrase Someone's gotta give! over and over again.
- The Choking Game - a game played anywhere, where a group of buddies get together and sit down. They all choke themseleves and whoever passes out first loses and everybody else wins. Ohio High school students Mark Oliveras, Amber Lutsock, Vira Goncharenko, Kaitlyn Prochaska, Lexi Becker, Sandy Bill, Sarah Cochrac, Holly Forrest, Ashley Devine, and Jen Pierce were famous for playing this game every day at Polaris Career Center during lunch at their table in the Commons during the 2012/2013 season.
- Need for Speed 3: Hot Pursuit - a game played on Bikes based on the 1998 PlayStation Electronic Arts video game. It works just like the original video game except, people get busted when they fall of their bikes rather than crashing and players go up and down the street rather than around like the tracks in the game and instead of a certain amount of laps being run, it goes on for as long the cop chase continues until there's one person left. Plus, the cop players must make siren noises and yell out the speaker phrases in the game and also give out the Speeding ticket and arrest messages to the suspect players as well. Anyone can be the Supercop (where in the actual game, it's usually the Chevrolet Corvette C5, but is the Lamborghini Diablo SV when the mode is set on Expert). Players who get 3 tickets are arrested and eliminated from the game. Whoever is the last player standing without getting arrested wins.
- Fritz and Ernst - Another game played in the swimming pool, in which the player must reenact the scene from the hit 1960 Disney film Swiss Family Robinson, where Fritz, Ernst, and Roberta are going through an extended, long trailing swimming pool to get back home when all of a sudden, a HUGE snake appears and Fritz attacks it, Ernst grabs the knife, and starts beating on the snake with it until it's finally gone and then when the fight's over, Roberta pleads to go home and Fritz agrees while Ernst discovers his Compass is gone and tries searching for it with no success. Fritz suggests to get along without it, but Ernst refuses and wants to keep looking until he's convinced by Fritz to give up and Fritz tells him he'll have to trust his judgement from now on. This can be both a Single and Multi-Player game, has no winners or losers, and is exclusive to Summer.
- Truth or Dare? - a game that is mostly played at parties. One player starts the game by asking another to choose "Truth or Dare?" If the player chooses "truth", then the first player poses a question, usually an embarrassing one, which the second player must answer truthfully. If the player instead chooses "dare", then the first player sets them a task, often an embarrassing or dangerous one, which player two must perform. After answering the question or performing the dare, that player asks "Truth or Dare?" of another player, and the game continues. Other options are commonly included. A variation frequently used by Australian teenagers asks: "Truth, Dare, Double Dare, Kiss, Love, or Torture?", the definitions of the options varying between communities. "Double Dare" often requires the group to pose a dare that will be carried out by both the player asking and the player receiving the question. "Kiss" asks them to kiss (or hug) someone; the person to be kissed could be part of the command or left up to choice. "Torture" often varies but might include the respondent having to choose between "tickle torture" (getting tickled by the group) and "truth torture" (having to answer a truth from every player). Among the many people who are known for playing this game include Mark Oliveras, Amber Lutsock, Leah Lutsock, Rachel Lucas, Marina Yost, and Elyssa Eliseo.
- Hide-and-seek - a game that can be played both indoors and outdoors. a number of players conceal themselves in the environment, to be found by one or more seekers. The game is played by one player (designated as being "it") counting to a predetermined number while the other players hide. After reaching the number, the player who is "it" tries to find the other players. The game is an example of an oral tradition, as it is commonly passed down by children to younger children. After the player designated as "it" finds another player, the found player must run to base, before he/she is tagged by "it.". Savannah Hall, Kassidy Hall, and Anthony Rinaldi, Jr. are famous for playing this game with their neighbor Mark Oliveras in many different ways like adding Tag into it.
