Beast Bass Bird is a physical warmup created by the team Jump Stitch at Bexar Stage on October 29, 2019.

Players stand in a circle. Player 1 jumps into the middle, makes eye contact with another player (Player 2), and they simultaneously clap once while each saying either "Beast", "Bass" (like the fish), or "Bird". If they both say the same word of those three, then they change places, and Player 2 goes to the middle, turns to another player, and they repeat the clap while saying either "Beast", "Bass", or "Bird". If the two players don't match words, the player in the middle turns to another player and tries again. The player in the middle keeps going until they match with another player, whereupon the two switch places.

There are no rules about repeating the words. The player in the middle can say "Beast" over and over, if they choose to. They could also stay with the same other player for multiple attempts.

The goal of the game is to have fun and generate energy, so it should be played fast, fast, fast!

Example

  • Player 1 jumps into the center of the circle and makes eye contact with another player (Player 2)
  • Player 1 claps and says "Beast" at the same time Player 2 claps and says "Bird"
  • No match, so Player 1 turns to another player (Player 3) and makes eye contact
  • Player 1 claps and says "Bird" at the same time Player 3 says "Bird"
  • That's a match, so Player 1 and Player 3 swap places
  • Player 3, now in the middle, turns to another player (Player 4) and makes eye contact
  • Player 3 claps and says "Bass" at the same time Player 4 claps and says "Beast"
  • No match, so Player 3 turns to another player (Player 5) and makes eye contact
  • Player 3 claps and says "Beast" at the same time Player 5 claps and says "Bird"
  • No match, so Player 3 turns to Player 2 and makes eye contact

And so on...
