The group stands in a circle and nominates someone to start. 3 - 2 - 1 ULTIMATE NINJA! Everyone has to start with a ninja pose position.
Going clockwise, the person whose turn it is must try and hit someone's hand, either to the left or the right of them. BUT - they must freeze still in the position that they end up in. (That is the important part).
You are not allowed to move from your ninja pose unless:
1 - Someone is trying to hit you
2 - It is your turn.
Keep going round until eventually one person is left standing as the winner and the ultimate ninja!
NO FLINCHING! If you are anticipating that the person whose turn it is will go for you, you must NOT FLINCH but freeze until they try to hit you (in which case you must obviously try and move out the way).
If you flinch, you must stand upright and put both your hands out in front of you at a 90 degree angle (Like a meerkat pose!).
This game is awesome. We have managed to play it all over Europe on mission to various youth and they love it!
