Group Game: House, Pig, Storm

We had a group game during the weekend called "House, Pig, Storm" which is similar to musical chairs or the boat is sinking.

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

Each group is composed of three, so the odd person out is the "IT".

The "It" chants "Bahay, Baboy, Bagyo" twice, which translates to "House, Pig, Storm". After the double chant, the It shouts either Bahay, Baboy, or Bagyo.

If the It shouts "Bahay", then the people forming the house will have to choose another "Baboy" to shelter. If the It shouts "Baboy" then the people being sheltered have to find another house. If the It shouts "Bagyo" then everyone has to form different groups of three.

Duing the mix-up, the It strives to become either a Baboy or one of the two pillars of the Bahay. Anyone who is unable to become a member of any group of three becomes the next It.

I created a Speak Tagalog Lesson at the Pinoy Podcast -- Episode 31: House, Pig, Storm (A Game)

The video clip of people playing the game was taken at the Mount Sea Grand Resort in Tanza, Cavite.
