Fun in the Sun Games – Waffles or Pancakes

In this weekly series we highlight fun, simple games which can be played at your local park, around your campsite firepit, with new friends or family. The games vary from icebreakers, name games, and exercise warm-ups, to puzzles or riddles. Check out our weekly post and get out there and have some fun!

Participants: 5 or more

Equipment: None

Timeframe: 5 to 15 minutes

Objective: To use decision-making skills to come to a vote

This game is great to play around a campfire. Start by saying, “Waffles or pancakes?” The group discusses which item is better. Individuals can share their cases for which they prefer, and then the group votes. The item that gets the least amount of votes is eliminated. Then, someone suggests an item to face off against the “winner”. For example, if waffles is the winner, then the new question could become, “Waffles or ice cream”.
