How To Play.... Big Booty!

Holiday Cookbooks
"Big Booty" is a rhythm game involving a group of at least three people. Due to being passed on primarily through word of mouth Big Booty has no standard rule set, and differs both on rules and name based on location of play. Basic rules, however, remain the same. This article describes one variation of the game. It's a great ice breaker and party game. Both children and adults can enjoy it, because it never fails to create lots of laughter in a group. Read on and you'll see why.

Steps
1) - Get at least three people. The game is best played in large groups of at least five. Arrange        yourselves in a circle, standing or sitting.
2) - Number the players. Establish one player to be "Big Booty," which is essentially just a                name for the leader. Number the other players as "Number One," "Number Two," and so          on, going around the circle in order.
3) - Start clapping. "Big Booty" will establish a simple 4/4 rhythm which consists of the pattern         "pat, clap, pat, clap". (You pat your thighs or a table surface with both hands then clap your        hands.) Start at a moderate tempo. The group joins in with the leader, so that everyone is        patting and clapping simultaneously.
.........................................................................................................................................................................

4) - Begin the game (assuming you're the leader) by singing "Big booty, big booty, big booty,            oh yeah!" This is to be sung in time with the rhythm:

Pat - "Big booty"
Clap - "Big booty"
Pat - "Big booty"
Clap - "Aahhhh yeah!"
....................................................................................................................................................

5) - Pick a person in the group by stating the number of any other player in the circle. That player is then to state his own number, followed by the number of a different player (or "Big Booty" if they wish to pass the turn to the leader), and so on. All this is to be said in time with the given patting/clapping tempo. For example:

All: "Big booty, big booty, big booty, oh yeah!"
Big Booty: "Big booty, number seven!" (said with a single pat and a single clap)
Number Seven: "Number seven, number three!" (said with a single pat and a single clap)
Number Three: "Number three, number eight!" (said with a single pat and a single clap)
...................................................................................................................................................

6) - Continue the pattern until someone makes a mistake by doing one of the following (in which case they must leave the circle):

 ► falls out of rhythm (usually because they didn't realize their number was called)

 ►talks during the chant when it is not their turn

 ►picks their own number

 ►picks the number of the player who just picked them (Example: "Number Five" picks "Number Three" then "Number Three" picks "Number Five" again--"Number Three" is out)
....................................................................................................................................................

7) - Close the circle and reassign new numbers according to the new order of people in the circle. If "Big Booty" falls out, "Number One" becomes "Big Booty." The game ends when there is only one left standing after the circle dwindles down in members.

Tips
Another variation of the game includes not being allowed to say two-syllable numbers, like "seven" becomes "sev", "eleven" is "lev", and so forth. If another player says "number seven", then he/she is out, or goes to the end of the circle.

Warnings
Some people may not like being called "Big Booty" and for them you can change it to "Big Beauty" "Big Cutie" or sometimes used with children "Big Boata".
In another version, you may call your own number. If you do this, it is just like someone else called your number and you have to go again. For example, if you are number two, and you are called, you could say "number two, number two, number two, number four.
