An active icebreaker circle game for large groups

How To Play Shuffle Bums

Materials Needed


You get all the chairs in a circle and have the people playing sit on them. Make sure there is one empty chair. Then pick someone to stand in the middle of the circle. The aim for him/her is to take a seat. The aim for the people sitting is to not let the player in the middle take a seat from them. To stop them from sitting down the players that are sitting down shuffle from chair to chair. Players can change the direction at any time.

How does a new person get in the middle? What happens if the person successfully sits down? Then what?

If you post a game, please make sure to take the time to explain it well. It does no one any good if you don't elaborate.
