A relaxed duel non-contact game
How To Play Take Two!
This is basically a quicker, more action-packed version of scrabble!
Get 4 players (or possibly 4 pairs/groups) to each start of in a corner of the room with 5 scrabble tiles. They must arrange these into adjoined words (similar to scrabble). As soon as they have a complete set (ie. no spare tiles left, all correct words) with the inital 5 tiles they must yell out "TAKE TWO!" and all players must run to the middle of the room to grab 2 more random tiles from the set.
The game continues and the players must now include the extra 2 tiles in their scrabble board. Again, once somebody has a complete set they yell "TAKE TWO!" and the process continues.
Obviously the game becomes more difficult when the players start falling behind and have lots of spare tiles to place, or when a death letter (X,Q with no U,Z) is picked up!
When there are no tiles left, the first player to complete their set wins!
This game is very similar to banagrams which you can purchase from Amazon.com.
