For this game you will need some electrical equipment. A long wire is attached to the positive pole of a battery. A wire is also attached to the negative pole with a loop. This loop is now slide over the over wire without touching it. If the wires touch a lamp comes on or a bell rings because it is attached to the plus and minus poles and the electrical circuit closes upon contact of the two wires.
There are several scoring possibilities: The distance covered can be measured, the number of people who manage it without touching the wire can be counted up or the amount of time needed can be recorded.
