|Recommended age:||all ages|
|Size of group:||it doesn't matter|
|Time for preparation:||low|
|Material:||various objects (cans with little stones inside)|
The leader blindfolds himself and the players must try to find and take object from an area of 5 x 5 meters or from a room without being caught. The time limit is 2 minutes in each round and a second group leader observes the game.
The member of staff sits on the ground with their legs spread out to the side. The following objects are between their legs: a stone, a can with a stone inside and a can with a stone on top. A member of the group tries to sneak up and take the items without being noticed. The member of staff is only allowed to take a swing 5 times and the player has 2 minutes.
Alternative 2: The member of staff sits on a higher position (cliff, perch or tree). The group now has the task of trying to find out approx. 10 letters or numbers which are near to the member of staff without being discovered. A second member of staff observes the game and may also collect up the numbers which are found. If the player is discovered, he is out of the game. This person is also not allowed to name/communicate/call out the number and must remain under the tree/cliff until the game is over. A thick forest, a fir tree forest or a terrain which is not easy to see through with lots of bushes, alcoves and dips is suitable for this game (another tip: the staff mustn’t see everything).
Alternative 3: The same as alternative 2 but each creeper receives a hut with a number on it. If the member of staff sees and calls out the number, the player is out of the game.
one point for each item which could be taken.
