Game description

In a classic scavenger hunt several teams sit next to each other. The person at the front of the team line must always bring the object which is simply called out or incorporated in a story. The player who comes back with the object within 2 minutes wins 2 points for his team. Then all of the players move a place forward in the line, the player who has just taken part, goes to the back of the queue. The type of game plan works well in a group room or on a campsite if the objects are daily objects and if the tasks are kept simple. The game is very hectic, very loud and for this reason, is often called the chaos game. Who is the first to bring:
a brown left shoe, a coin dated earlier than 1970, a flower, a living animal, a stocking/tights, a stamp, a piece of paper and pen, the sum of the numbers 1-10 (=55), the date of birth of ...., the birth town of ..., a beaker of water , burst a balloon , the largest stone , the longest piece of grass in 60 sec., a pine cone, a hair from ..., the number plate of ...., the smallest book, the smallest shoe , themselves, dressed as a ghost, wheat, straw, the town mayor’s telephone number, the number of windows/window panes of a building ....


The team with the most points at the end has won. It is recommended that you set a time limit for some exercises otherwise the kids which search for some items for hours.
