Some Common Game Characteristics

Some of the common characteristics of games are:

  • The number of participants can vary and they cater for large groups. Some games become unwieldy if more than twelve or fifteen play, but even for these the upper limit is flexible.
  • The players can often participate at different levels. 
  • Good games have a variety of ways to play along and contribute (so that everyone can join in and enjoy them)
  • Many games are mainly non-competitive. For example murder mystery games which are mainly group role plays.
  • Often Games are not restricted to location, they can be played inside ( indoor ) and outside ( outdoor ) 
 
Activity / Game

A game is generally defined as a structured/semi-structured activity. These games / activities are undertaken for enjoyment and often used as an educational tool by parents/teachers. Key components of an activity /games are rules, goals and a winner. The game is often a challenging and/or interactive activity. Games tend to involve mental and/or physical stimulation which is beneficial in helping develop skills, encourage exercise and educate the participants.

Large group games are those which are those played with a large number of participants. These group games are used as planned activities in environments such as school, party (party games), youth groups and social gatherings.

Games are also often used as a team building exercise. If you search the internet for team building games you will return thousands of links to exercises, companies, and all kinds of offerings ranging from paintball to fire walking (although depending on the occasion a simple group game can be a great form of team building in itself).

Random Game

Bouquet

This is played similarly to "Stage-coach." Any number of children can play it. One is chosen out and is called the "gardener."All the children sit in a circle and the "gardener" gives each one in turn the name of some flower. When all are named the "gardener" stands in the center of the circle and tells how he has gone to the woods to gather certain flowers, how he has transplanted them to form a lovely garden, the care he has to take of them, and so on, telling quite a long story and bringing in the names of all the flowers he has given to the children.As a flower is mentioned, the child who has that name rises, turns around, and sits down again. Anyone who fails to rise when his flower is named must pay a forfeit. When the gardener says something about a bouquet, all the children rise and exchange seats. Then the "gardener" tries to get a seat, and if he succeeds, the person who has no seat becomes the "gardener" and the game goes on as before.
