How to Play

  • Group everyone into pairs.
  • Have each partner group introduce themselves and play a round of Ro Sham Bo (or enough rounds to break a tie).
  • Everyone who does not win becomes the winner’s cheerleader, following them and shouting ‘Go _____!’
  • The winner moves on to play another winning student.
  • Each round, the winner advances to play again and the non-winners and any previous cheerleaders are now all cheering for that winner.
  • The game continues this way until it is down to two players and the whole group is cheering for one or the other.
