    Good Fun wide game. Have played this many a time as participant and have run it as well. It doesn’t require too much space depending on the group size.

    It is also good fun when people get confused… lots of laughs.. Really like the idea of Plan A and B as well.. will try this when we next run this game.

    Variation – play in pairs, however you don’t need to tag your partner if you win. Instead, just count who wins the most out of 3 or 5.
    When playing in pairs, stand back to back before each round, then call out “Giants, wizards, elves”. On “Elves”, take one step away from your partner, then turn around and do your action.
