The group stands in a circle and counts around. They can say up to three numbers at a time; for example, you might get:

  • 1, 2
  • 3, 4, 5
  • 6, 7 etc.

…but when they reach the number 11, they have to stop.

Whoever has to say the number 11 has to sit down, and the counting begins again. This carries on, and the group number gets smaller. This is when tactics come into play!

The players try to count to the right amount to make sure they’re not out. It’s fun to play and great to watch for those sat down, and watch the players.
