number-3 Plan a party game: Fiesta Flash

Here's a great idea for a simple game to play with mates - all you need is a camera with a self-timer and a few 'up-for-it' friends!

Number of players? As many as you have!

Who can play? This one's for everyone – especially the camera shy!

What's needed? A camera with a flash and self-timer (most digital cameras and some disposable cameras have both - just check first!)

What's the gist?

1. Grab the camera, set the self-timer and the game begins.

2. Each player must hold the camera at arm's length and point it at themselves for a second or two - before passing it on to their left.

3. Keep going, until the camera goes off with a flash of light, a startled face and much laughter.

4. If the flash goes off, that person must do a quick forfeit (you decide!) before the game continues. Of course, random forfeits can also be awarded for not holding the camera long enough…

Who wins? Anyone lucky enough to avoid the flash.
