Games from India

Everyone sits in a circle. One person who is it stands in the center of the circle. This Person is called " It". Each person asks the person who is "it" an appropriate question. The only answer to every question has to be answered as " Tomato ". The first person to make the center person ( It ) laugh wins a try in the middle. Ex: What color is your hair? Tomato. What do you brush your teeth with? Tomato . (Obviously other funny Questions can be used for variety.)

Wolf's Dinner Time
One player becomes the wolf and he/she will stand with his/her back turned to the others about 15 feet from the others. The others call out, "What’s the time Mr. Wolf" and the wolf turns to face the others and shouts out a time. Eg: 9 o'clock. The others would then take 9 steps toward the wolf. The group will take the same amount of steps toward the wolf as the amount of hours in the wolfs time. eg, 4 o'clock = 4 steps, 6 o'clock = 6 steps etc. etc. The wolf will then turn his back to the group again for them to yell "what’s the time...." (He looks at the group only when he shouts the time at the group").
When the group comes close to the wolf the next time the group yells "what’s the time Mr. Wolf" the wolf will say 'Its DINNER TIME" and run after the group who are running back to the start line, and hopefully catch one of the group who will then be the wolf. It sounds noisy, but is an interesting game.

Head or Catch
Many people line up against a wall. A chosen player goes to the front of the line with a ball. Then he or she either shouts "Head" or "Catch!" while throwing the ball. Whatever the person calls, the first has to do just the opposite; if the thrower calls "Head!", the first person has to catch the ball, and if the thrower calls "Catch!" the first person has to head the ball. If the first person either misses the ball or does the wrong thing, he/she is out and the game continues. But if the person does the right thing, he/she is still in, and the play still continues.
Whoever is in last wins the game.
Roaring Lion
4 or more players.
1.Select a person to be the Lion.
2.Have the lion sit with their back to the other players at least ten feet away.
3.Put a stuffed animal (toy) behind the lion and have the lion pretend it is his cub.
4.Have the other players take turns sneaking up behind the Lion and trying to steal the cub.
5.If the lion hears the person sneaking up it can roar and then turn around. If the lion has caught a player the player takes the lions place and the lion goes back to the other players. If there is no player when the lion roars the player lion remains the lion and the game starts again.
