Chicken is a classic game that calls for at least four people, but more is always better. Pair up in teams of two, and elect a person from each team to sit on the shoulders of their teammate. When the buzzer sounds, mayhem ensues as everyone tries to knock their opponent down and into the water. Be sure the pool is big enough that everyone can avoid the sides. A trip to the ER is the fastest way to end a pool party.
