Some fun games to play in the dark include statue tag, glow stick ring toss, glow bowling and reflector ring toss. Required items for these games are flashlights, reflectors, glow sticks and glow bracelets.

In statue tag, one person stands at the front of the room with his back turned, while everyone else pretends to be statues. While the front player's back is turned, the statues can move toward him. The front player can turn around and shine a flashlight on the statues at any time. If a statue is caught moving, that player is out. The goal of the game is for the players who are statues to touch the person in the front of the room without being caught.

In glow stick ring toss, a glow stick is secured on its end with a mound of clay on the floor. The players then take turns tossing glow bracelets, attempting to loop them around the glow stick.

Glow bowling is played in the same fashion as regular bowling, but the pins are made from empty soda bottles with glow sticks inside of them. Set the bottles up in a triangle, and have fun knocking them down with a ball.

To play reflector treasure hunt, place small reflectors around a dark yard or open space. Teams then use flashlights to search for the reflectors. The object of the game is to find the most reflectors.
