Duel at the totem pole
|Time:||approx. 3-5 minutes per each fight|
|Recommended age:||from 8|
|Size of group:||min. 2 volunteers|
|Time for preparation:||10 minutes|
|Material:||Foam isolation tubes (for pipes), sawn off brush handles or sticks, dirt or washable (finger) paints.|
2 fighters are tied to the totem pole with a 3m long piece of rope. The rope is tied to their left hand with the other end tied around the totem pole. In the right hand, each fighter holds a rounded and dirtied sweeping brush handle/stick (10cm long) as a knife. The players now try to strike each other. Strikes above shoulder level lead to disqualification. A rough game – but who doesn’t want to show their fighting power and skill just like Old Shatterhand and Winnetou?
This game is fight based. Knife duals should not really be included in a repertoire of children's games. However this game deals with speed and skill. The dual is not dangerous if foam covers the stick.
