Super Saiyan Method

The participants must count as far as possible, with their eyes closed. No number may be mentioned twice, and only one person is allowed to say each number. If more than one person says a number, the game is over, and you must start at the beginning once again. You play the game as long as the participants are still motivated and the listeners are still enjoying it.

Example

 

Person X says 1, person Y says 2, person Z says 3, ... -> all fine.

Person X says 1, person Y says 2, person Z and person A both say 3 at the same time, or in short succession, ... -> not ok.

 

Not permitted: A battle between two individuals in which person A says 1, person B says 2, and person A continues with 3, and so forth. The change should be fluid.

 

More participants make the execution of this exercise more difficult. The game makes little sense with less than five participants. Playing this game with more than fifty participants is difficult and not recommended.

Preparation

No preparation is necessary.

Execution

The participants must have their eyes closed during the exercise; visual cues are not permitted.

The game can also be played as a challenge. The rules are as follows: Two or more groups are created, and each group counts once. The group that manages to count highest is awarded a point. The group with the most points at the end wins. Advice: Points should only be awarded if the count exceeds 3. Granting points for counts of 1 or 2 makes little sense.

Hints from experience

Practice makes perfect! The success rate will be low in the first few rounds, but it will increase with time.
