Alien, Tiger, Cow

Rock, paper, scissors


This is an exercise used to break the ice, and get everyone in synch. Everyone into a circle.


There are three things that the players can be. The first is an alien. The alien is signified by making antennae with your fingers and leaning into the circle making the noise “zeep zeep zeep”. The second thing you can be is a tiger. The tiger is signified by leaning into the circle exposing your ferocious claws and roaring. The last is the cow. The cow’s udder is exposed by putting your hand on your stomach and mooing loudly. Someone in the circle briskly counts to three. On three everyone commits to one of the three character types alien, tiger, or cow. Keep repeating the cycle of 1-2-3 until everyone does the same creature. Generally dissolves into complete chaos before there is any synchonicity.


Increase the number of options i.e., cow, android, fridge, Chevy


Majority Rules– the odd people out are out. I.e., if there are six tigers, four cows and two aliens the two players that chose aliens are out of the circle.
