How To Play Ameba
Place a chair in the middle of a room or playing area. The bigger the playing area is, the better, it's definitely best not to be confined to a small area.
Get the group to form a circle, by holding hands, around the chair. Then it's time to play.
The group needs to start moving around the chair without touching it. Each player has to aim to get the other players out by making them touch the chair - this can be done by pulling and pushing, but the circle chain can't be unlinked. If it is broken, the 2 players that broke are out.
This game, if played too roughly, can probably cause injuries. It's best to play it with a group that are all roughly of a similar age and size.
