Explanation of gestures
The Elves, Wizards & Giants Game is a unique version of Rock, Paper, and Scissors – except the kids will use their hands, legs, and even entire bodies instead of just fingers. You will need a large area or space to play. The rules for this game are similar to the rules of Rock, Paper, and Scissors.
- Giants can conquer wizards. The kids have to raise their hands above their head when they stand to pose as giants.
- Wizards can conquer elves. To be a Wizard, the kids have to form a triangle with their arms over their head, replicating a Wizard hat.
- Elves can conquer giants. To pose as an elf, kids have to place their hands alongside the ears, with the index finger extended just a little.
Rules of the elves, wizards and giants game
Here’s how to play: Once the rules are clear, you can start the game. Divide the kids into two teams, and also divide the room or play area into two zones. Each team will have a safe zone where the stronger team cannot attack them. The teams will stand at least four feet apart from each other. The teams can huddle and discuss what they want to be and on the count of three by the moderator, shout out who they are, making the appropriate gestures.
If both teams choose the same gesture then nobody moves and we start again.
If one team chooses an option stronger than the other, they can chase the weaker team and try to tag them before they reach the safe zone. Anyone who gets tagged becomes a part of the opposing team. The team with fewer players in the end loses.
