Game description

Before the game starts, the candles are placed on the table at equal distances. As soon as the game leader gives the start signal, the first participant has to blow out as many as possible candles in a set time. For example, in 30 seconds. Once that is done, the candles are lit once again, and the next kid has a go.


Place the candles in a straight line, again in equal distances. Now the candidate has one go to blow out as many as possible candles.


The winner is the player who has managed to blow out the most candles.
