Buzz

Buzz is a word game that combines serious brain power with fun!
Setup

1. All kids should sit/stand in a circle making sure to remain in the same place.
2. Beginning with the number 1, each child will say the next consecutive number in order of their placement in the room, game space, or circle.

How to Play

1. The first child says "1," the second child says "2," so on and so on...
2. Every time a number with "5" in it comes up, that child is supposed to say "Buzz" instead of "5"
3. It should sound like, "1, 2, 3, 4, buzz, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, Buzz"
4. When a number comes up that has two 5's the response should be "Buzz Buzz."
5. If a person misses their cue to say Buzz, they are out and the circle becomes smaller.

Variations

1. Buzz can be used for any number. Example: if Buzz=3 than the group would say : 1,2,buzz, 4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,buzz
2. Buzz can also be used for multiple numbers if you really want to make it challenging.
