Get ready to reach and stretch your way around the other players in this wacky party classic! Listen to the body part and color that the referee calls out. When you hear “Left Foot… Yellow!” put your left foot on the yellow circle on the mat. Sounds easy, but soon enough you’ll find yourself reaching around the other players to follow the ref’s directions. Don’t fall over and be the last player standing to win!Over forty years old and going strong! Soon after its release in 1966, Twister was made instantly popular when Johnny Carson and Eva Gabor played it on The Tonight Show. Such a simple concept, with so much potential for hilarity. The game includes a plastic mat with red, blue, yellow, and green spots; a spinner; and instructions. To play (as if you didn’t already know…), two to four players face each other, with the plastic mat in the center. A referee spins the spinner, then calls out the body part and the color the arrow points to (“Left foot, blue,” “Right hand, yellow”). All players, at the same time, follow the directions, placing the appropriate body part on a vacant circle. Players become increasingly entangled, until someone (or everyone) finally topples, and is eliminated. The last person standing—er, crouching—wins. If this doesn’t bring families and friends (and celebrities) closer together, we don’t know what does! Out-and-out fun. –Emilie Coulter

Tired of video games? Try this classic! My 14 year old son constantly berides us for remaining Nintendo-free. So imagine his surprise, when at his 14th birthday party his like-minded guests discovered “Twister,” declaring it an “awesome” game.

It’s a blast! I have played this for years at birthday parties, but finally got one of my own last summer. So I took it to a Summer Youth Camp with me…and about 25 of us teens took turns on there. It was such a blast!The only thing I would say is, if you have back or neck problems, you might want to skip this one. Or you could always be the spinner person. Either way, this one’s tons of fun!
