Zip Zap Zop
Source: various, often used as an exercise for actors/improvisation, or an ice breaker
Everyone stands in a circle. One player starts, pointing at another player and saying "Zip". That player then points at another player and says "Zap". That player then points at another player and says "Zop". Play continues with that specific pattern of words until someone either hesitates or says the wrong word. That player then gets a Strike. Once a player gets 3 Strikes they are knocked out of the game and the game ends.
Zip Zap Boing
The 3 words ("Zip, Zap, Boing") now all have specific functions:
- Zip: The player targets the player on their left.
- Zap: The player targets the player on their right.
- Boing: Bounces the energy back to the player who targeted you. No pointing.
