HUMAN KNOTS

Human

This youth group game is a bit of a puzzle game that can be done as an entire group or as a competition.

Have each team/group get into a circle, with students standing up and standing shoulder to shoulder facing the inside of the circle.

Have each person reach out his/her right-hand and grab the hand of someone else in the circle. They cannot, however, grab the hand of the person standing next to them on the right or left.

Then have each person reach out his/her left hand and grab the hand of another person in the circle. They cannot grab the hand of the person standing next to them, and they cannot the grab the hand of the same person they are joined with using their right hand.

Once everyone is joined as described above, instruct students that they are not allowed to ever release hands or their team loses.

OBJECT: For groups to get “untangled” from the “knot” so that they are standing in a large circle hand in hand.

NOTE: Depending on their situation, when they get untangled, not everyone will be facing inside the circle, and that is OK. It is most important that they get untangled.

The first team to get completely untangled is the winning team.
