Masking tape is a must have game supply. It can be used from everything to making a simple line on the floor to divide sides or for identifying teams; but there are more game ideas if you look for them. I have done some of this work for you.

Before you scroll down to check out the games I found, I want you to know that I am an Amazon Affiliate and the links I share below help support this website. Thanks in advance for any purchase you make.

Here’s are some great ways to stock up

nine pack of regular masking tape 0.94 inches

seven pack of color masking tape one

five pack of Super Bright UV Florescent/Blacklight

two pack of glow in the dark tape

Warning: there is some potty mouth here but you’ll learn the game within the first minute. Make sure you cut a bunch of tape pieces based on the size group you are playing with. I can see this as a fun 7–12 person game.

This game is simple. Start with a ball of tape and keep wrapping it until it is the size you want it. You could make several size balls to from large to small (start big and go smaller) as each person goes out change the size of the ball.

You could also have the circle start wide and as each person goes out, ask the group to take one step in. You can keep the ball the same size or change to different size tape balls.

One last idea, use the glow in the dark tape from above to make you tape ball and play in the dark with a black light.

I used duct tape in this video, but I should have used masking tape. The concrete floor made it a bear to get up and left a sticky residue. This game could also be played with the glow in the dark tape.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the games!
