One that we do, common in correctional facilities, where you use a deck of cards to do pushups (doing said number of reps on the card you draw.) This can be used for any exercise, such as dips or chinups. Face cards are worth 10 reps, aces are worth a short break.
Another one is "chicken", where me and my buddy who is about the same strength as me, pick up the same amount of weight and see who can out rep eachother. We set up 2 benches facing eachother, each grabbed a 45lb dumbell and started doing skullcrushers across from one another. The loser (first one to stop) must do 10 pushups. Do this for a few sets.
Anyone have any fun games they do to increase motivation and intensity?
My favorite game is punch your training partner while avoiding his attempts at striking you. Not quite the same as yours, RR.
In the weight room, I like to do the clean and press/pull-up challenge. The goal is to do as many sets of 5 on each of them with 20 seconds rest in 5 minutes. Loser has to buy a post-WO feast.

not really a game but sometimes when my training partner and I get too hopped up on NO Xplode we se how many pushups and situps we can do while humming "eye of the tiger" abnoxiously loud...... seriously we get the funniest looks especially when humming in unison
