Game description

Two children sit back to back on the ground. The arms are hooked together. Now both players try to „turn“ their opponent around. The winner is the one who manages to get their opponent’s stomach, or at least both shoulders, to the ground. Standing up is not allowed.


As a simpler additional option, the opponent can also be pushed out of the field. A mat can be used as a playing area or a circle of sawdust if played on grass.


The person who is turned around or touches the ground with the shoulders has lost.
