Game description

For the game, you need nothing but a few players. However, to make it a bit easier, it is recommended that you draw a circle on the ground. Inside you can do that with ropes or pillows, outside, you could use branches, etc. As soon as the team leader gives the starting signal, all players try to get on the other side without touching any other players.


Of course, this game can also be played with many variants. For beginners or younger participants, pairs could be marching on the opposite side at first, instead of all players starting to run simultaneously. Older participants may try to reach the opposite side blindfolded - of course, they are also not allowed to touch other kids.


There is no real winner, the objective is to pay attention and to be considerate.
