This is a question Impromptu Games You Play

Me and the missus were at London Zoo the other day. We invented a great game called "Spot the Paedo." We counted about 8 single men with suspicious facial hair before the end of the day. What games have you made up on the spot to play with your friends?

This question is now closed.

this is really nerdy
we get a copy of the time out film guide and read reviews of films out to each other, leaving out key words like the title of the film and the actors in it. the other people have to guess which film we're reading the review for.

like i said *really* nerdy

Good lord just remmembered another.
In my last job myself and a collegue would regulary have meetings with our Boss, to discuss issues with workloads staff etc. Before we go into the meeting we would choose a single word such as 'Buffalo'and then see how many times we could say 'buffalo' in work related scenarios. One of us would then keep score on a notepad making it look like we were taking notes. If the word usage was questioned by the boss then it didn't count. We also did it with song names, in particular Metallica song names.

tesco hairy sausage
I hate Tescos and their slack food hygiene. So I collect dog hairs malted from my pet and then deposit small amounts on the sausages in tescos and come back and watch peoples reactions later on

Oh and another
Me and a friend would go into town and head for the lifts in the big mall type things. We would then take it in turns pretending to have dropped a contact lense. The trick would be to get as many people in the lift to help you look for it, then walk out on the next floor.

Banned Tandy
Me and a friend used to regulary frequent various Tandy outlets in and around Birmingham. For those too young to remember Tandy shops think of a cheaper version of Dixons. Anyhoo Tandy always had Keyboards( or sythnesiszers as the kids call them) on display and fully plugged in for you to have a mess about on, so me a my mate used to see how long we could last playing as loud and as bad as we can too the Bossa Nova beat, and not get chucked out. I lasted a whole 10mins on a busy saturday morning once.

BT Van - no returns
sort of like a points game, whenever you see a BT van, you say BT van - no returns. there's a certain sence of satisfaction when you get one when playing against others - can be changed for BT lorries and building - but not phoneboxes / phones / adverts...
try it

Can i ask a question? - Game
Many years ago while i was at school me and my friends had this game when the teacher was facing the white board you took it in turns to stand up and put your hand up with out the teacher noticing, this continued in a set pattern until someone was caught and then has to say "can i ask a question?" the difficult thing was beacuse you were playing the game you were rarely paying any attention to what the teacher was saying so thinking of a question on the spot was difficult.
Also any failure of asking the question would lead to the person receiving serious dead arms and legs.
Really funny game though espically if you get the whole class involved.

The Uber-Impromptu Girlfriend
My first long-term girlfriend was also my wildest. She embraced all sorts of unpredictable, impromptu moments of fun. It was charming, though, not tiresome at all, because she didn't like to be spontaneous just for the sake of spontaneity alone. She wasn't an adrenaline junkie or anything like that. She'd just get an urge and go with it, natural as could be, enjoying the moment.

That being said, she was really into exhibitionism. This meant she would constantly come up with little competitions between us, so that one of us, as the loser, would have to expose something of ourselves in public view. As often as not, the game took the form of simple chance. "The next car that comes to the stop sign... if it's four-door, I win... if it's two-door, you win." Or, "Let's flip a coin, and the loser has to moon the winner."

Since we were young teenagers at the time, fear of embarassment wasn't nearly as powerful as fear of rejection -- not when I was head-over-heels with a girl for the first time in my life. So I went along with it. And here I should note that I am most definitely NOT an exhibitionist by nature. Nor am I much of a paragon of spontaneity. But I did it, nonetheless. I mooned my girlfriend in the middle of the mall. I dropped trou in line at the movies. I took off my shirt in a restaurant and had to be threatened by the manager if I didn't redress promptly.

But, of course, my girlfriend had a lot more fun with it than me. Somehow, despite all the vagaries of chance, she managed to lose a lot more than I ever did. We got kicked out of a lot of places as a result, or else we ran before they caught us. Flashing tits in a grocery store might be the loser's share of the game, but arrest surely wasn't, you know?!

The trolley game
Adds fun to any shopping trip. The object is to get items into other people's trolleys (or baskets) without them noticing. Trolleys left unattended are the easiest, just pop the item in. You can also wait until the person bends down to get something off another shelf, or turns their back. Wait until they are reading the back of a packet and just slip something in.

Extra points are awarded for "themed" items, for example, a woman in a track suit with a trolley full of skimmed milk, salad, low fat yoghurt etc, would get a secret block of lard or some chocolate. Someone buying nut cutlets, vegeburgers, etc., would receive a nice steak. If you can hide the item underneath something they have already put in there it means it may not be discovered until the checkout. One of the best items was a retractable dog lead, slipeed into the basket (difficult) of a man who we had noticed outside the store, nervously trying to avaoid a labrador tied up outside.

Even more fun is the children's version of the game. Wait till Mummy or Daddy has gone off to get something and leaves the child alone in the trolley seat. (This works best in the confectionery aisle). Take a packet of sweets or a candy bar off the shelf and hand it to the child. Opening the wrapper and saying "here you are" adds to the fun. Retire to a safe distance and watch.

I was once playing this game in Morrisons only to find I was being followed by two lads trying to slip some items into my trolley. I got my own back though, unless they had intended purchasing a jar of vaseline and a cucumber.

This is pretty stupid, but
Ever since I was a wee lad, I play this thing on car trips where you pick a smudge or a speck on the side car winshield, and try to keep that speck above the skyline and sort of outlineing trees and buildings and such. Again pretty stupid but entertaining. Simple pleasures for simple minds...

Fart Mimicry
We'd be lying around the dorms watching television when someone would fart. Everyone else would quickly take a turn to imitate ("vocally")the sound and life goes on.

Booger Reactions
My buddy and I fish a lot. One day on our way back home he started picking his nose while driving down the highway. Thus began the "picking your nose in plain sight of other drivers and observing their reactions" game. Everyone should try this! It's just too damn funny seeing the myriad of reactions you get - from wide-eyed amazement to doubletakes, from hysterical laughter to utter disgust...and all it takes is a finger and a nose (the best things in life are free, or so I'm told). Sometimes when some one sees you digging for gold it's fun to speed up just a bit so as to get a few feet ahead of their car and act like you're unsuccessfully trying to flick it off of your finger. Got a lotta laughs from this one LOL!!!

Hide and Go Seek is Still fun.
Sears Shopping Centre Hide and Go Seek.

One fine day my friends and I decided that it would be fun to see a restricted movie even though we were only 17 and they had strict laws saying we couldn’t buy tickets. So, being the eager beavers that we were we showed up an hour too early for the movie and were bored to tears. Wandering around aimlessly in the department stores of the mall, we thought it would be fun to recreate a moment of our childhood. This idea spawned an old familiar game which involved running around like fools trying to find hiding spots in clothes and toys galore. There were 5 of us, one that stayed at the store entrance and counted to 20 and 4 of us who ran in different directions; or what seemed like different directions. I thought it would be a great idea to try and hide in a fridge because there were a few that were really big and could fit Big Foot if you tried hard enough. Running towards the fridges I could almost smell the Security guards were on our trail like a fat homosexual to Ricky Martin. There she was! The greatest site my eyes ever did see, the fridge of my dreams. This would be my home some day, but not without jettisoning some cargo. Before I started to pull drawers and separators out of the fridge my friend Ian spotted me and headed my way.
“What the hell are you doing!?” Ian frantically questioned.
“Just quick, take this vegetable crisper and start a new life somewhere where no one will find you, a secret place where everyone knows your face!” I frenzied.
“Seriously man, what the hell is a vegetable crisper? First you think that I would want to go somewhere where no one would find me and you tell me to take something that doesn’t exist with me?” Ian questioned hysterically.
“Do I really have to tell you what a vegetable crisper is? Jesus H. Christ man, I’ve got to get into the fridge!”
”Honest, what the hell is a vegetable crisper! You have no idea what you are talking about!”
“Just take the drawer you dolt, I need to get into the fridge before it’s too late.”

Into the fridge I went and it wasn’t long before I was found by the mall security. Once he opened the door I quickly replied with: “Wow! It sure is roomy in here, thanks for letting me out the seal is great on the fridge; I’m sure my parents would love this model. Now where did my friend run off to with the vegetable crisper, he was supposed to let me out?”

I got out of there as soon as I could and ran to where my friend Dave was hiding. We then ran into the mall area away from the shopping centre and tried to see if we could signal our friends to come out as well. They too eventually ventured out of the shopping centre and we all decided it would be best to just sneak into our restricted movie and not play hide and go seek any more. After watching the movie, the evening was complete when my friend Dave rode the gigantic pig ride which stated that it was “for children use only.”

rather than games, i usually do dumb tricks that few other people can do on the first try
such as:
-i will fold my arms, wait, tell the other person to play close attention, wait, wait some more, then spontaneously fold my arms in the other way (i.e., if my right hand was originally over my left upper arm, then when i re-fold my arms, my left hand will be over my right upper arm). this seems easy, until someone else tries it.
-i will point one index finger at someone, and with my other hand i will give them thumbs up. then i will switch hands, so my the hand that was pointing is thumbing-up and vice-versa.
-i stick my middle finger and pinky in the air, with the other two (the thumb stays down the entire time) tucked down aat the first knuckle, as if giving someone the middle finger, except with my pinky in the air as well. then i will switch fingers.
-tongue tricks/knuckle cracking (i can crack lots of joints and knuckles in my body)
-moving almost each toe individually
-various other games that everyone plays, like the road sign alphabet game or i-spy

cliff marry fuck
dont know if someone's mentioned this already, but my friends and i play a game called cliff marry fuck, where you pick three of something, like... the friends girls or something as random as the last three letters of the alphabet and you go, 'cliff marry fuck xyz' and each person says which one they'd cliff (i.e. push off a ), marry (which is a lifetime together but NO sex) or fuck (which is one great night but absolutely nothing more).
tis the funnest game *ever*

And there's this
Part of my long running game of Get On The B3ta Radio Show, which looks like I'll loose, seeing as how it's quite popular...

Couple more
While a joint's going round, instead of passing it you yell something, usually a name, like "Robert!" and whoever yells "Smith!" first gets it. However, it has to be the one you're thinking of, so if it's Bob we usually get through Marley, Hoskins, Kelso...

Then there was one time we had this eccentric English teacher after our good one left- he'd just come back from about thirty years in Milawii (the African country, I can't spell) and was a very odd fellow indeed. We had the game of one person coughing then everyone else doing it, which culminated in a five minute coughing session which left everyone very horse, but brought his nervous breakdown forward a week. Our crowning achievement however was Sleepy Time. One of the class would stand up when his back was turned and shout sleepy time, we'd all put our heads down and snore. Not so much games as mental torture, but tell that to whoever invented Boggle.

I had the game of not setting my watch an hour back as it would save me time when I went abroad and when the clocks went forward again, and challenged others to do the same to see who could win by not getting infuriated by it but no one else saw the point. I won it this weekend :D

in a wide open area you take a broom and hold it upto the sky with the bristles up. look at the top of the broom and spin around 50 times. on the count of 50 you have to bring the broom down and stand on the head holding onto the handle still. watching them fall over is always hilarious.

broom == brush (boom boom!)

a variation on the phone game, whenever you get a wrong number you either say to them I know it's a wrong number, we don't have a telephone, or pretend you've called them, and that they are a delivery company and you haven't received something.....the first one my dad got from eric Morecambe, the second one is my own. and..Shooting the scrotes in skeggy... you drive through skegness with a car full of pissed blokes, three supre soakers and a seafront full of scrotes, more points for the different type of scrotes...you also have to shout at the scrote you're aiming at first...so things like Dole Scum, Shellsuit man, Fat bird, and scuzzy tramp bloke are all acceptable... we'll never be welcome in skeggy again!

And the random...
In our call centre we play random,which is where when its slow and you get a call you have to do something random during the call and then pretend nothing's up, examples have included barking like a dog, calling the customer madam when its a bloke, drifting into latin halfway through a sentence, saying 'and your mother' after every statement, and whenever a customer asks something 'would you like fries with that?' have to be very careful tho in case you get call monitored.

My friend and I play a game when we're on the phone (I live a long way away). If we're on the phone and our wife walks in they have to "Play The Game" and show us their boobs.

It's a great game...

All from a grammar school... oh we are the elite ;P

You throw a shiny penny on the floor, and when someone goes to pick it up, pounce on them screaming "JEW" and beat them senseless.

There was also "INTERSECTION", where we'd get someone, pin them against the wall and keep them there by pinning them with chairs and building up heaps of chairs all around them. Tables got involved, but then the teacher came back.

in my school, what u do is youve got a penny or a 10p or whatever, just get a coin and throw it. The first person has to hold onto it for aslong as possible while the others do anything to get hold of it, ANYTHING. so then the person who gets it is then subjected to the beating of a life time or whatever. Very fun.

i tried to instigate a game of "get lemons into Toms pants while he's very drunk"
at new year. the idea being that he would wake up with lemons in his pants and be confused

unfortunately the lemons all fell out of his trouser leg, but the game has potential for future fun
