This version of Find the Leader (also sometimes called Follow the Leader) is a crazy, wacky group game that is perfect to use for teen party games or slumber party games.  

One of the things that makes it great is that it is a teen party game requires no preparation and no set up, so it can be played anytime! It is always nice to have some great group games that are "ready to go" at a moments notice, and you don't have to have a certain number of people or required objects.

The object of the game is for the person who is "it" to try to figure out who is leading all the other people in the group as they are doing the same motions.

Read on for a detailed "how to" on how to play this easy game. 

How to Play the Find the Leader Game

How to Play

First, selection someone to be “it”.

“It” leaves the room.

The remaining guests pick someone to be the “Leader”. They get in a circle and “It” comes back into the room and stands in the middle of the circle.

Now it's up to the “Leader” to do different actions – like hopping on one foot, patting their head or waving their hands. All the other players in the circle do whatever the Leader is doing.

“It” looks around and around the circle, trying to figure out who is the leader. The person who is "It" gets three guesses!

If time allows, keep playing until everyone has had a chance to be “It."

I lead a theater group of teenagers, and this is one of their favorite games to play! It is nice because it is an easy game to play with a big group of people, and everyone is playing the entire time. With some games, people are eliminated and then they have nothing to do while the others continue playing the game. But with this game, everyone is doing something the entire time.
