Game description

There are 2 teams, who each make up an ant tribe. One member of each team is the killer ant and is marked with a ribbon. 4-5 blankets are laid out in the playing field which represents the ant hills. The killer ants now try to get as many ants from the opposing team as possible by tagging them. If an ant is tagged, he must lie on his back with arms and feet in the air. A dead ant can be transported by two other ants to an ant hill. As soon as an ant is laid on an ant hill (=blanket), the ant is alive again and is allowed to continue playing.
The killer ants are not allowed to kill any ants when they are on an ant hill or when 2 ants are transporting a dead ant. Ants are only allowed to spend a maximum of 10 seconds on the ant hill (=in safety).


The winning team is the team with the most living ants at the end of the game.
