Description: Trickster is a game intended to be played in person. Split your class into 6 different groups, and each group gets a color of a monster (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple). For this specific green is the trickster. Whichever group is the red group should be given this order of colors: Purple, Yellow, Red, Orange, Blue. Everyone must close their eyes, but the green group will sneak up to whatever music instrument you have at the front (I use rhythm sticks so their classmates don't recognize their voices.) The green group will play the rhythm of the first color (purple) then sneak back to their seats. Once everyone is seated, the class may open their eyes and pick which color monster was played. Be sure to click on the monsters' smile to choose that monster. After choosing the correct monster, that group (the purple group) lays down because they are out. They may watch to see who the tricksters are, but they may not speak or give hints. All the other groups close their eyes again and the tricksters sneak up again to play the rhythm of the next color monster on their list. This continues until the final monster is out, revealing the tricksters! Other groups may guess they are the tricksters before hand, but they cannot reveal themselves until the end! Eventually there will be 6 different games available for each rhythm note featured so that each color will have the chance to be the trickster
