This game is an energy passing game which requires players to be stood in a circle. There are a multitude of game moves that can be made, these are listed below. 

Game Moves:
Zip: Player claps their hands together and says "zip" to pass to the person next to them. Zips always follow the direction of play.
Zap: Player claps their hands together and says "zap" to someone across from them in the circle (anyone but players either side of them). 
Boing: Player holds up their arms like they're shielding themselves with a large sheet of rubber and says "boing", this deflects whatever move was made to the player (e.g. it would reverse the direction of zip or bounce back the zap to the player who sent it across). You cannot "boing" a "boing"!
Wibble: The player shakes their hips in a circle and exclaims "wibble". This skips the next player in the order. You cannot "wibble" a "zap"!
Boomerang: Player announces "boomerang" and throws a boomerang around the circle to which everyone else has to duck. Once the boomerang has been caught by the original player they then make a new move.
Skipping Rope: Player announces "skipping rope" and swings a skipping rope underneath the players whom all jump over the rope. Once the skipping rope has gone under everyone the original player makes a new move.
Siren: Player "flashes" their hands as if they were sirens and makes a siren sound (e.g. oooOOooOOooOO). All players then run around to a new spot in the circle before the original player makes a new move.
Kersplat/It's Mine: Player throws a "splatty" substance down into the middle of the circle and announces "kersplat". Other players can then shout "It's mine!", if only one player shouted it then they make a new move to continue the game, if more than one person says it then the first of those players to run around the circle (inside or out, depending on the amount of space you have) will continue the game with a new move.
Bombzip: Player announces "bombzip!". Other players can then say "defuse", if only one player says it then the bomb is defused and that player makes a new move. If more than one player says it then they must kneel down and are "out" of bombzip, the original player then announces "bombzip" again to the remaining players, this continues until only one person defuses or until everyone is knelt (in which case the bomb goes off and everyone explodes in slow motion).
Flamingo: Player prefaces another game move with "flamingo" which causes all players to stand on one leg. Players proceed to stand on one leg until the original player to call flamingo is targeted by a move.
It's You: Player points at someone across the circle and exclaims "it's you!", these two players then swap places across the circle (high-fiving each other when they cross). The play then continues with the second player (because it's them!)
Where's the Baby? Player exclaims "where's the baby?", all players proceed to "search" the room for said baby, eventually a player will find the baby and shout "found it!" at which point everyone returns to the circle and the baby-finder makes a new move.
Panic at the Disco: Player exclaims "panic at the disco!" and all players rush to touch a piece of wall (ideally a unique piece of wall that no-one else has touched, space permitting). Once all players are touching a wall they return to the circle and the original player makes a new move.
Tufnell Park: Player announces "tufnell park" followed by a word. Players then go around in a circle producing a rhyming word for the original word. When a player can't think of anything or says a nonsense word everyone will cheer and that player can then make a new move.
Complete the Name: Player states a forename, players then shout out celebrity surnames to match the forename. The first correct player then has control and can make a new move.

The rule "Tufnell Park" is named after the London group of the same name (who came up with the rule) although it has been seen for other tube station names be used instead of Tufnell Park!
