Pass the Orange Game

I saw this goofy game in the movie Charade, with Audrey Hepburn and Clark Gable. 

The game is hilarious, the movie is funny, and here is an adorable scene from it. Check it out here:

Watch the scene from the film

How to play:

Divide all your players into two teams. There should be at least 3 players on each team.

Arrange everyone in a line, standing closely side by side. Stand across from the other team so you have two parallel lines.  Give one orange to each team.  Signal the beginning of the game by having someone on the end of the line yell, "Go."

Pass the orange from the first person to the second using only your neck, passing the orange from neck to neck by holding the orange between your chin and collar bone. This invades everyone's personal space and makes the game uncomfortable or thrilling, depending on how you feel about the person you are passing to or receiving from.

Continue to pass the orange to the next person using only your neck and continuing on down the line.

Chase after any dropped oranges without using your hands. Opponents can try to kick away the orange but they may not pick it up. You might have to chase the rogue orange across the room while scooting on your bottom or tummy and pick it up with your neck or chest.

Return the orange back to the front of the line, still using your neck, and moving any way you can without  dropping the orange.

Begin again from the beginning, moving the orange down the line from player to player.

In order to win, you must successfully send the orange down the line and all the way back before the other team.
