Activate the Com Switch

I will be the first to say that I pulled the Rogue One games together last minute! That being said, Pinterest had no useable ideas for party games with this theme. I know, I was surprised too. Everything Pinterest gave me had a Jedi theme to them, which Rogue One does not have. My son’s choice, but as my sweet baby Arthur turned 10 this year, I had to wing it! I was playing around with assorted ideas for what would work and here is the first one I came up with.
Remember the scene where Chirrut crosses the open space, while Storm Troopers are firing, chanting “I am one with the Force, the Force is with me”, and manages to activate the Com switch? I decided to have the kids walk a plank of wood, blindfolded, and they had to slap the “com switch”, in this case a Foldgers coffee can. As much fun as it would be to be shooting at the kids while they were walking, I thought that would’ve been a bit much.

I was working with what I had on hand, so the board probably should’ve been a bit longer, but it was funny to watch them wave their arms around trying to find the coffee can.
All you need for this game to work is:

•a plank of wood, wide enough for the kids to walk on safely (probably best to leave it on the ground to avoid potential injury)

•a stick (more to simulate Chirrut in the movie, but it can be used to find the Com switch)

•a blindfold (we are simulating a blind guy after all)

•a small table or stool with a switch or something the kids can smack (try to aim for waist height on the kids)
Then you’re good to go. Have fun with it. These kids sure did!
