This is my all time favorite classroom game to play with kids.

I used to play this, but we didn't change directions after buzz. We had one buzz number and if you were meant to be the person who says that number then you'd be out. Though in my opinion, 21 is better game competitively but it helps with quick response and maybe critical thinking. (dunno). But, it's not much for the multiplication and skip counting aspect.21 is a game similar to Buzz but players are allowed to say 3 numbers instead of one. First person could say 1 or 1, 2 or 1, 2, 3 and so on, it's more strategic in choosing which numbers to say. If you say 21, you're out, and have to sit down. A key thing I picked up on during finals (1v1) is that you're guaranteed a win if you say 16 which leads the other finalist to say 17 or 17, 18, or 17, 19. Which you can counter with 18, 19, 20 or 19, 20, or just 20. Both games are fun- the version of Buzz I used to play wasn't so much since there was no game and it was just plain counting and getting out occasionally.Note: Players can't just say 3 or 2, (depending on where you are in the game), they must say all numbers leading up.
