Grab! is a variant of the game Musical chairs (Trip to Jerusalem), but without chairs.


  • small, light objects (socks, shoes, pillows, etc.), one for each player
  • optionally borders for the playing field (ropes, chalk, etc.)
  • music


The objects are put scattered in the center of the room, one less than the number of players. The players are standing outside the playing field.

When the music is turned on, the players run outside around the playing field. They may not stop and they may not step into the playing field. When the music is turned off, each player has to run into the playing field and grab one of the objects. As there is one object less than there are players, one will not get an objects, and is thus out of the game. Then, another object is removed and the next round starts. The last player to survive wins the game.
