Twister is a very simple game that can become very complicated as the players can easily get tied up in knots. The mat that forms the playing surface is decorated with six circles each of red, yellow, green and blue.
The mat is durable, waterproof with a wipe-clean surface but it can also be a little slippery so care must be taken. The spinner arrow is easy to assemble and to use.
An appointed person spins the spinner and calls out instructions for the players to follow, such as: "left hand blue, right foot red". The players follow the directions, moving their hands and feet to the relevant circles and try not to fall over--a knee or an elbow on the ground and they're out.
For young children the challenge is not only not to fall over but also to remember left from right and colour recognition. Suitable for Ages 6+
