Game description

This game is particularly funny if played in a large pool, which gives everybody enough space to move around. To begin, all kids hold on to the edge of the pool, while forming a circle around the pool. It is important that everybody touches the edge. If somebody loses contact, he becomes the prisoner and has to move to the middle. All kids start to move in one direction, while at the same time trying to wrestle the person in front of him away from the edge. Now, the prisoners themselves form a circle and move in the other direction. The game ends when the distant between the kids is too wide to make any more prisoners.


All kids who remain within the outer circle are considered the winners of the game.
