Thumb Warthumb war group game



Equipment: None


This is a fun game to play while on or waiting for the bus.




Two players grip hands with their fingers curled, thumbs pointing up. Together, players chant:


One, two, three, four,

I declare a thumb war!


Then each player tries to pin the other player's thumb down with their own thumb. Players cannot pull their hand away. If a player can hold down the other player's thumb for a count of ten, then he/she wins. Try playing as a mini-tournament.
