--How to play
--- Assign the girls letters and the guys #s. Make sure you have a list for both. If you have more than 26 girls assign shapes or colors but make sure you write them on your list.
--- A person sits in the middle on a chair
--- Then a # and letter or color/shape is called
--If a girl is in the chair the guy running has to kiss the girl in the chair before the girl running kisses him.
--If a guy is in the chair the girl running has to kiss him before the guy running kisses her.
--What ever gender is kissed has to go in the middle and the other gender gets a point.
-- So if a girl kisses the guy then the girls get the point. And the guy is now in the middle.
--If a guy kisses the girl then the guys get the point, and the girl has to now be in the middle.
--Watching the YouTube video will help you understand.
