Icebreakers Valentine Twister

Description Twister is a very simple game that can become very complicated as the players can easily get tied up in knots. Play a classic game of twister replacing the colored dots with Valentine's Day Hearts and phrases from Candy Conversation Hearts.

Game Materials 1. Valentine’s Day Conversation Candy hearts “BE MINE”, “I’M YOURS” etc. 2. The normal mat in the boxed game that forms the playing surface is decorated with six circles each of red, yellow, green and blue. Instead of the standard twister mat, cut heart shapes from colored construction paper and use sticky-tack to adhere them to the floor.

Place them randomly. Vary the number of phrases/colors and rows to accommodate the size of your group. Add the common phrases to the various hearts to match those of Valentine’s Day Conversation Candy hearts.

3. If you don’t have a spinner you can easily make one. Make a twister spinner that includes right hand, left hand, right foot, left foot. You can also paste these onto the side of a die and roll the die in place of a spinner.

Game Preparation Make the game mat using the same colors and phrases as those found on Valentine’s Conversation hearts. Put the real candy hearts in a bag and draw them out. Use the spinner or die to select the body part. Example: “left hand PINK: BE MINE”; “right foot: Green: I LOVE YOU”; etc.

Game Objective Touch the Hearts on the floor with the correct body part as indicated by the spinner and the color and phrase of the candy heart drawn from the bag. Do not let any other part of your body touch the ground.

Game Play 1. An appointed person spins the spinner and chooses the heart and calls out instructions for the players to follow, such as: “left hand: Blue: YES”, “right foot: yellow: I’M YOURS”.

2. The players follow the directions, moving their hands and feet to the relevant hearts and try not to fall over–a knee or an elbow on the ground and they’re out. Use the wrong body part or the wrong heart and you are also eliminated from the game

3. The board can get quite crowded and the participants quite distorted hence the name “Twister.” How flexible are you?

Variation Instead of playing on an individual basis, divide the group into teams. The team with the last remaining members in the game wins.
