This article discusses the party game called “Twister“. ”This game can benefit prepper families not only during normal times, but also after a disaster.
“Twister” is such a popular game that it has been with us since at least the 1960’s. Parents who played this game when they were children now play it with their children.
The challenge of “Twister” is for players to put their hands and feet on different colored circles on a mat and/or to put their hands and feet in the air without falling over. A spinner randomly chooses the color of the next circle where players are to put their hands or feet. The last player who does not fall over wins the game. This game also can become more challenging by wearing socks instead of shoes. Those who are at least 6 years old probably can reach the colored circles in this game.
Watching players become tangled up makes both spectators and players laugh. “Twister” can become even more fun by listening to Chubby Checker’s Twist music during the game. The laughter that results from this game could be especially therapeutic during a stressful time after a disaster.
Although this game is fun, it also makes family members aware of their lack of flexibility. Adult preppers who are flexible from daily stretching might even outperform their children while playing this game. Doing so might challenge the children to stretch daily in order to become better at this game.
Those players who are not overweight also will have an advantage when playing this game. Seeing slim players excel might inspire overweight players to slim down so that they can perform better during future game competitions. Spending less time as a couch potato and as a video game addict is a healthier lifestyle for children.
This game has many other advantages. According to an Amazon reviewer, it has been used in physical education classes to teach balance. Also, it requires no batteries, plugs, or TV’s. In addition, prices for this game are as low as $12.00. Furthermore, it can be played indoors or outdoors. Moreover, it requires very little space to play it. Additionally, Amazon raters gave this game an average of 4.5 out of 5 stars. Finally, it is an excellent choice not only as a family game, but also as a party game.
This is a fun way to inspire family members to become more physically agile. Humor can be a powerful teaching tool in a prepper’s arsenal.
