Pulse

Arrange everyone into two or more equally numbered teams. We would have guys verses girls sometimes and at other times we would do it by grades. Have each team line up in parallel lines. Then you will give them each a number, make the numbers close together, and tell it to the person at the beginning of the line. When you say go they will squeeze the hand (pulse) of the next person the amount of times of the number. This continues all the way to the end of the line. Once the person at the end of the line knows the number, he or she should yell out the number. The person to yell out their number first, that team wins.

 

Strategy: What I would often do is give the lower number to the team that might be the underdog. For ex; the underclassmen. As that means it would require fewer "pulses" and should give a small advantage.
