Description Edit | History

A large vinyl playing mat is placed on the floor, with a 6 x 4 array of spots, each spot about 6 inches in diameter. The spots are colored red, blue, yellow, and green. A player is chosen to moderate, and the rest of the players, up to 4, stand on the play mat with their feet on different spots.

Each turn consists of the moderator spinning a spinner, which gives a result matching a random color with a random element from the set (left hand, right hand, left foot, right foot). Each player must put the relevant bodypart on the relevant color spot. If the bodypart is already on a spot of that color it is moved to another spot of the same color. No two players bodyparts can share the same spot. If a player falls or touches an elbow or knee to the ground they are eliminated.

Iterate until one player remains.

This classic party game became an overnight hit when on May 3, 1960 when Johnny Carson played it during the Tonight Show with Eva Gabor (see: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/image/104221).

2 Twister Deck
I invented the "Twister Deck" to add a bit of strategy to Twister. It replaces the spinner. Two teams of three compete. One player on each team is the 'Strategist,' and does not stand on the mat. Instead, each Strategist selects a card from their hand; either Red/Blue/Yellow/Green or LeftFoot/RightFoot/LeftHand/RightHand. They reveal simultaneously, the other team members try to comply, the Strategists trade hands. Repeat until one team member fails. The PDF is designed for printing on one USLetter-sized sheet, both sides. Cut marks are included, as is a rules card. Enjoy! (The original version of this had the Twister logo on the backs of the cards. As per BoardGameGeek's Terms of Service, I had to strip that off in order to upload it. You can find the original version on my personal...
