Fun in the Sun Games – Green Glass Door

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: One who knows the riddle, and at least one who does not

Equipment: None

Timeframe: Until everyone gets the trick (or gives up!)

Objective: To learn the “trick” of the game

The person who knows the “trick” will say “We’re going on a trip through the green glass door. I’m bringing…” and say something that has a double letter, and then an example that cannot go through the door with no double letter. Example: “books, but not movies; spoons, but not forks; puppies, but not dogs, etc… The other participants are then asked what they would bring, and the leader of the game would say yes or no to the item. Example: “I’m bringing food” is correct, but “I’m bringing oranges” is not, and the leader would say “no, but you could bring apples”. This continues until everyone has figured out the pattern.
