Especially when children come for the first time at a camp or something alike, there might be some reservations to talk to other kids. Hatschi-Bratschi is a funny getting to know game which can be played in- and outdoors. All you need is a few chairs, to be exact, one less than there are children. At the beginning of the game, one child will be drawn, which must leave the room. If played outdoors, it can alternatively hide behind a tree or a fence. Then Hatschi-Bratschi is drawn, and all children take a seat. The other child can come back in and has to go now, from one child to another asking: “What is your name?” – As soon as Hatschi-Bratschi is discovered, all children jump up and change seats. The child, which does not secure a chair, will have to leave the room, and the game starts all over again.
None, getting to know each other is the objective
