Game description

Everyone is sitting in a circle while the team leader walks from child to child whispering a number in his ear. The child has to memorize this number. Now, the game leader or another child assumes the role of Schraps. He starts the game by saying, “Schraps has lost his head. I think number 4 has got it. Now the child with the number 4 quickly has to respond by saying, “4 has not got it, but 7 does.” To make it more challenging, Q&A have to be answered very quickly. If a child forgets his number, says a wrong number or answers to slowly, has to leave a deposit and a new round starts. The game ends after a pre-decided time or as soon as a certain number of deposits is reached. To get your deposit back, each child has to perform a particular task which is decided upon by the other kids.


The one who gave the most deposits loses the game.
