A fast paced tag-esque game where students continually switch seats and chase one another. 

Pro Tips: 

  • Play music
  • Use more than one swatter/trashcan 
  • Make the playing field big 


  • Trashcans
  • newspaper
  • tape
  • chairs

How to Play: 

This high energy game is fun for small and large groups! 

RULES: The game begins with everyone seated in a circle except for one or more people who are the swatters. The swatters have a rolled up and taped newspaper in hand and choose someone to swat. Once they swat someone they must run and set the newspaper on the upside down trash can and get back to the open seat before the person who was swatted gets the newspaper and swats them. If the newspaper falls off the trash can, the original swatter is still in the middle! 

Swat is a fun, cheap, entertaining, and a personal @blynch509 and @rockjr.highfavorite!!!
