Group Size

Materials

None needed

Set Up

Set up is the same as paper rock scissors (aka roshambo)

Directions

Have everyone pair up and get ready for a good match of paper rock scissors; specify single elimination or best of 3 (depending on time alloted) Here's the catch: The loser becomes the victors most ardent cheerleader. If Frank beats Charlie, Charlie follows Frank around for the following rounds cheering his name - "GO FRANK, GO FRANK! FRANK FRANK FRANK!" Every time you win, you also win over that individual's cheerleaders. In other words, say you have won a few rounds and you have 5 cheerleaders following you around chanting your name...but then you lose -- then you cheer on the person who beat you; and your cheerleaders do the same.


Debrief

Ask them how they felt cheering for a team - if they won, how did it feel to have half the group cheering your name?
