All over is a pretty straight forward game. It’s perfect for middle school as you’re able to get a lot of energy out before a talk.

You can use dodge balls, frisbees or whatever. Divide your group into two even teams and mark the room in half with a strip of painter’s tape down the center. Divide your objects evenly and place them on either side of the center. The leader yells, “all over” to start the game. Players try to get all of the objects over and be the first to have their side completely empty of objects. They can throw or kick them across. Depending upon how many objects you have the game can be near impossible to win. You may need to start a countdown and then have the leader yell, “stop.” The team with the least amount of objects on their side wins.

For added fun you can divide the room in four equal sides like foursquare and have four teams competing.

    We’ve played a variation of this game and had to add in an additional rule. Each person only have 5 seconds to hold onto the item they grab – because we had a team try to hold all of the items on their side until the very end and then throw them all over at once. The other option is to not have a countdown and end the game at a totally random time… like a thief in the night…. :)

    Chase how can one team hold all of the items? wouldn’t the other team win?
