Fun in the Sun Games – Finger Fencing

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: 2

Equipment: None

Timeframe: 1 to 5 minutes

Objective: To prod the other player above the elbow with your right index finger before they prod you. This game is fun to use as a tiebreaker. The two competitors bow, lock their right hands (arm wrestling style) and point their right index fingers. The facilitator says “Commence” to begin the match. The two players try to prod each other above the elbow but below the shoulder using only their right index fingers. End the game with a second bow. This game can be played as one round or as a tournament.
