Knights, Horses & Cavaliers

Another ace alternative to your bog standard game of Musical chairs. In this format players play in pairs but must assume a different 'position' when the music stops.

How do I play it?
  • Get your friends to pair up, ideally with someone from the opposite sex
  • When the music’s on, the pairs must prance and dance around at will. When the music stops the games facilitator shouts either ‘Knight’, ‘Horse’ or ‘Cavalier’
  • ‘Knight’ means the male has to give his partner a piggy back, ‘Horse’ means the male has to give their partner a horse ride by getting on all fours and ‘Cavalier’ means the male has to get down on one knee and the female sits on it
  • The last couple to execute the maneuver is out and so the game plays on until the remaining couple is announced the winner

  1. We played like this which is also fun...(adapted for teens)
    Knight: One partner has to get down on one knee and propse to the other holding hands
    Horseman: One partner gets down on all fours and the other sits side sattle
    Cavalier: One partner jumps into the other partner's arms

  2. Great alternative! Thanks for sharing. Do you have any pics as I would love to put it on the blog.
