Pillow game
Type: coordination game
Number of players: 10 players or more
Location: sitting in a circle
Equipment: chairs, pillows
Duration: a few minutes
Preparation: none

The pillow game is a challenge for two groups while sitting in a circle.


  • each player needs a chair
  • two pillows


The players are split into two equally sized teams. They are sitting in one circle, with members of both teams sitting alternately. Both teams get one pillow (in the beginning at opposite sides of the circle). After the starting signal, the pillows are passed from player to player (among the same group, of course). Is one pillow able to catch up with or even overtake the other team's pillow?
