Musical Chairs
Do not confuse this game with the traditional musical chairs that we have been playing since our childhood. It is an advanced version of the same game. Arrange for the chairs equal to the number of the participants. Make a tightly knit circle with the chairs. Ask one of the participants to stand inside the circle, which will leave a vacant chair outside. The player inside the circle has to rush to the vacant chair, but the other players have to keep occupying the vacant chair and hence creating a vacant chair in the process as they move.

Dumb Shall Ask
The fun would be doubled if the number of teams are increased. The game is even more entertaining if it is played with enthusiasm and lively spirit. I am sure you know how these popular indoor games are played. A team has to give a word that can be anything like a name of a movie, place, person, etc. to the person of other team. The Team member has to enact the word or a phrase so that it is understood by the team within the stipulated time.

Obstacle Course
An obstacle course is designed for the whole team which they need to collectively cross. The game has a series of obstacles that have to be crossed in sequence. Once the whole team is done with one obstacle, they together move to the second. The team that takes the minimum time to complete the game would be the winner.
