Simon Says Break World Record
(2007-09-17)
(WOUB) - A giant game of Simon Says in southeast Ohio didn't break the world record over the weekend, and there was no winner, except some Athens High School athletes.

The event that drew 950 people to Ohio University's football stadium was a fundraiser for the high school basketball team.

The number of people trying carefully to follow only Simon's instructions fell short of the nearly 1,200 who played in Glasgow, Scotland, last year and made the record books.

Fifty people were still standing in Athens when Saturday's game ended.

The group did not include some who should have known better, such as those who were told to raise their hands if they had a college degree and did so, even though that wasn't something Simon
said.
