Whether you’re hosting an event, trying to entertain some kids on a camping trip, or looking for games to play during your next babysitting gig, “Simon Says” is a great, fun way to pass the time. It’s extremely easy to explain to kids and doesn’t require you to buy anything. So, we created a long list of commands for you to use the next time you play this game.

Here are some funny, unusual and easy “Simon Says” Ideas so you can just have fun with your family or friends and not having to think of anything off the top of your head.

How to Play

If you don’t know how to play “Simon Says”, don’t worry. It’s extremely easy.

To play this game, one person is the “commander”. This person gets to tell everybody else what to do. For example, “Simon says touch your nose”.

When the commander says “Simon says” before a command, everyone has to do it.

But, when he doesn’t say “Simon says” the players aren’t supposed to move. If the commander doesn’t say “Simon says” before a command, the players who move are out.

Rundown of a game:

“Simon says touch your nose.” **Everyone touches their nose**

“Simon says do jumping jacks” **Everyone does jumping jacks**

“Touch your head” **The people that touch their head are out**

It really is that simple.
