Here's a fun game we play at camp if it rains. I'm not sure what age
level but we've used it with cub age kids.
You take a pack of cards, and cut it so that there is one card for each
player. Make sure one of the cards is the Queen of Spades. Everyone sits
in a big circle and either takes or is dealt a card. Let no one else see
your card! Whoever has the Queen of Spades is the murderer. The murderer
them proceeds to wink (or blink) at other people to "kill" them. The
killed person should wait a couple seconds before they die rather
dramatically so its not obvious who the murderer is. If someone thinks
they know the murderer they can raise their hand and guess. It they're
right, they win. If they're wrong, they're dead! The game continues until
someone guesses the murderer (or the murderer kills everyone!) This works
best in a larger than den size group. 10-30 kids or so.
