Tiger Games
Bay Area Council
This Is My Tiger Toe

"It" sits in the middle of a circle formed by the other players. It runs around the circle and finally comes to a stop in front of one of the players. It may say something like: THIS IS MY TOE! While he grabs his elbow. The player whom he has challenged must take hold of his toe and call: THIS IS MY ELBOW! Before it can count to 10. If a player fails or becomes confused as to the names he should use, he becomes IT.

Tiger Tail
Bay Area Council

The game is played like the old favorite, Duck, Duck, Goose. Everyone sits in a circle, except for the one Tiger who is IT. It walks around the outside of the circle tapping each boy and saying: TIGER, TIGER, TIGER, TIGER --TIGER TAIL! The boy tapped as the Tiger Tail must get up and race It around a circle back to the empty spot. The person who doesn't get a seat is the next IT.

Huff Puff Tiger
Bay Area Council

Fun for small places. Have Tigers stand or kneel around a table so that they are all chin level with the table. Place a ping-pong ball in the center of the table. The person closest to the spot where the ball leaves the table is out. In the end there will only be two Tigers blowing the ball back and forth. One will eventually prove to be the bigger "Blow Hard".
