Hot Potato Scissors

How to Play:

All participants will sit in a circle except for one, who will control the music. The one playing music will turn their back to everyone else. When the music starts, participants will pass the ball around in a circle, trying to get it away from them as fast as possible. When the music stops (at a random time), the person holding the ball and the one who passed it to them will play Rock, Paper, Scissors. The loser will sit out and the game will continue. When there are only two left, the participants will sit across from each other and pass the ball back and forth rapidly. If the ball falls to the floor, the one who dropped it automatically loses. When the music stops, the two will play rock paper scissors and whoever wins is the winner!
