A numbers game

Reach 20 via random numbers - it's harder than it sounds


  1. Ask the group to sit in a circle and close their eyes.
  2. The aim is for the group to count up to twenty, through random members saying the next number (rather than going around in circle order). As the girls have their eyes closed, they can't signal to someone to say the next number.
  3. If two people say a number at the same time, the group must start from one again! Sounds easy? Try it!
