Ape, Man, Lady

This is a variation of Rock-Paper-Scissors. Have people pair off. When the signal is given, each person strikes a pose like an ape, man, or lady. Be sure to demonstrate what each looks like ahead of time. The ape beats the lady (because King Kong took the lady), man beats the ape, the lady gets the man. Eliminate the losers and pair the winners until you get a champion.

we do gorilla, man, Gun. (Gun action is a bazooka) and we sing a song with it to understand the rules. It goes like this: "Gorilla beats the man. the man beats the gun. the gun beats gorilla and if you tie you die." Then after singing that twice we all say "one two three and they turn and show the sign. The group knows the rules so they quickly sit or find a new partner.
