Fun in the Sun Games – Slack-Jaw Dance-Off

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: 6 or more

Equipment: None

Timeframe: 5 to 15 minutes

Objective: To become the slack-jaw champion Have the group partner up. Each pair should stare eye to eye. Neither person can laugh or smile, but they can blink. After 30 seconds, opponents continue to stare, but start lowering their jaws. If neither opponent has laughed or smiled after one minute, they can begin dancing or making funny faces to try to make their opponent laugh. They should continue to keep eye contact and keep their jaws lowered. The winners from each pair compete against other winners until there is a champion!
