Fruit Basket

Zany, crazy with lots of movement and imagination, this is a party game for you.

Need to liven up any party? Fruit basket is universal game for all seasons. This is an especially fun game for large parties. You just can’t play some games with groups larger than 15. No fear here, with fruit basket the more the merrier. This game never gets old. Once you get your creative juices flowing there is no end to variations you can create with this one simple format!

Items needed pre party preparation

This may well be the best part. All you need is a theme with four parts and a piece of paper for each player. That is the easiest party prep ever! If you really wanted to go the extra mile, tape or a chair for each player could also be used.

Ages that will like playing Fruit Basket

Spunky three year olds on up to an active seventy-two will all love to play.

Object of play (how to play)

So you want to know more about how to play this fun and simple mixer? Well read on! First divide the group into four roughly equal groups. Each group needs a name. This is where your party prep comes into play. If your party is a dinosaur theme you can have each group be a different dinosaur, or movie star, or color, or you can rely on the old stand by and give each group a fruit name like: apple, banana, pear and grape. (If your creativity fails you completely you can even just name the groups one, two, three and four!)

Once everyone knows their group name mix them back together and have them sit or stand in a circle on their piece of paper. The paper is just a place marker and can be taped to the floor. One player is selected to stand in the middle of the circle. The first player in the middle should place their place marker in the center, so the outer circle is minus one space.

The player in the middle calls out one of the group names. Each member of that group must now move to a different place marker, while the person in the middle seeks to steal a place. The player left without a place in the outer circle stands in the middle and play resumes.

The ace in the hole is if the person in the middle calls out ‘fruit basket’ (if you are using a non-fruity theme you may select a different phrase). This means that all players must change places. Let the mayhem begin!

Children will love being dinosaurs or princesses. The older crowd will like the fast paced nature of the game. Bottom line no matter if you are a fruit basket or a hoard of African mammals your party goers will love this game.
