Binder Clip Tag

December 27, 2013 - Game Sketchbook

The objective of Binder Clip Tag is to pin a single binder clip on to a friend or something they are wearing without that person noticing. If your victim notices what you are doing, you’ve failed and must try again later or choose another, less-observant person to try to clip it to. If the clipping is a success your hapless victim is left to find out they have been clipped the next time they brush a hand through their hair or dig for their pen in their pocket.

When they discover they’ve been clipped the hunted becomes the hunter and the once-victim is tasked with passing the binder clip on to another person in the same sneaky fashion it passed to him/her.

Strategy tip: baggy clothing is a disadvantage as is not having eyes in the back of your head. If you want to raise the stakes of the game, set a wager on it. Whoever leaves with the binder clip on them at the end of the day buys the next round of drinks.

Word of warning: this game is difficult to stop playing. Head on a swivel!
