Number of players: any number
Location: small playing field
Equipment: rope, blindfolds
Duration: arbitrary
Preparation: none

Romeo and Juliet is a simple game for any number of participants.


  • blindfolds
  • a rope


The participants are standing somewhere in the room. The players (Romeo and Juliet) have their eyes blindfolded. Juliet additionally gets her feet bound together.

Romeo now has to catch his Juliet. Juliet tries to get away (shy as she is), however, from time to time she silently whispers "oh, my Romeo". All other players are quite, so Romeo can find Juliet just by her sounds and whispers; hey may help (or mislead) him by pushing and giving hints where she is.
