This counting game will have everyone in the circle buzzing about the outcome.

Number of participants: 3+
For:
Intensity level: Low
Preparations: None or not specified.
Equipment: Pencil and paper for scoring (optional)
 

Have all the players sit in a circle.  Have them begin counting in sequence clockwise, from one to 100. However, each time a player reaches a number that is divisible by seven or contains a seven, then he/she must say “Buzz!” instead of the number. For example, the game would start out “One,” Two,” “Three,”… “Six,” “Buzz,” “Eight,”… “Thirteen,” “Buzz,” “Fifteen,” “Sixteen,” “Buzz,”… and so on.  When the group reaches the seventies, every number is a “Buzz” and 77 is a double “Buzz Buzz.” Anytime a player makes a mistake and forgets to say Buzz, or else Buzzes at the wrong time, he/she earns a penalty point.  Receive two penalty points and you are eliminated. Continue playing faster and faster as players drop out. The winner is the last player remaining.
