Get Active: Ultimate Ninja

Thursday 29th October 2015

Ultimate Ninja is a great team game that is fun and extremely competitive, requiring quick reflexes and a little strategy. Ideal for 6-10 players in a group.

The aim of the game is to become the ‘Ultimate Ninja’, with players eliminating others from the game. To start all players must be standing in a circle facing each other with their hands in front of them. The lead player (after the first round, the lead player will be the winner of the previous round) will loudly say “Ultimate,” and then everyone in the circle will say “Ninja!” as they choose a pose. Once they have chosen a pose, everyone except the lead player must stay frozen.

The game is then played clockwise, with each person taking a turn. The lead player will then start by choosing one motion (1) an attempt to hit another person’s hand with their hand in one swift motion, or (2) one movement, such as taking a step or jump in any direction. On completion of the motion they must freeze in the position they were in at the end of their attack. Defending players are allowed one motion to dodge the incoming strike, but must hold the new position they end up in. If the attacking player hits another player’s hand, that player is now out of the game and moves out of the circle. Remember all players must remain frozen, in their last position, unless they are attacking or being attacked when they can make a movement as described. The game is over when there is only one player left. Play again and again; there will be some hilarious ninja-like poses.
