Simon Says is a children's game. Suitable for any number of three or more players. One player takes the role of 'Simon' and issues instructions, to the other players, which should only be followed if prefaced with the phrase 'Simon says'.

Popularity
A game needing single minded concentration.

Simon Says is a very popular party game, as it needs no previous experiance to play. It is also very popular as a group warm up activity at gatherings such as Cubs, Brownies, Play Groups and School.

Location
Indoors and outdoors.

Age
Suitable for groups of any size, aged 4 years and upwards.

Ability
A command starting with "Simon says" means the players must obey that command. A command without the beginning "Simon says" means do not do this action. Anyone who breaks one of these two rules is eliminated from the remainder of the game.

Description
One player takes the role of 'Simon' and issues instructions, (usually physical actions such as 'jump in the air' or 'stick out your tongue') to the other players, which should only be followed if prefaced with the phrase 'Simon says', for example 'Simon says jump in the air'. Players are eliminated from the game by either following instructions that are not immediately preceded by the trigger phrase or by failing to follow an instruction which does include 'Simon says'.

Dedication
It is the ability to distinguish between valid and invalid commands, rather than physical ability, that usually matters in the game, and in most cases, the action only needs to be attempted, rather than completed accurately.
The object for the player acting as 'Simon' is to get all the other players 'out' as quickly as possible, and the winner of the game is the last player who has successfully followed all of the given commands.
