Twister rules

When there are more than two players, you must elect a game referee. He or she will be responsible for rotating the pointer and keeping track of the competitors.

If there are two people playing, the pointer is not rotated. In this case, the opponents take it in turns to choose a colour and a limb to be placed on that colour.

Before the game starts, people have to take off their shoes and stop as shown in the following picture.

Twister - rules for the initial stand-up

Twister game is on

The player in charge of the arrow turns it and calls out what to do. For example: 'Left hand on red'. The person with the task has to move the corresponding limb on the colour box as quickly as possible.

Twister moves can be performed either by all players at once, or one at a time (in which case each player rotates the pointer individually). Decide which option you prefer.

  1. A player can only move one limb on one colour per turn. The person who rotates the arrow is the referee, so he has to keep an eye on all the players and decide who wins.
  2. Once the player has completed his action, he can no longer move. The position in which he has stopped must remain until his next move. The only exception is when the referee allows him to move. This is unless the other person has to put an arm or leg through him.
  3. Sometimes it happens that all the boxes for a particular colour are already occupied. In this case, the arrow needs to be rotated again.
  4. When the referee calls out a colour on which this player is already standing, he must move his limb to the next square of that colour.
  5. A player is out of the game if he touches the mat with his elbow or knee, or if he falls. In this case, he/she gets off the mat and the rest of the team plays.
