Game description

Two children turn into crabs. They must crawl on all fours try to knock one another over. The challenge though is, that the players are not allowed to touch the ground with their knees. Needless to say, that is quite exhausting.


The winner is the child who can stand it the longest or manages to trick the other child out. Of course, you can play this in a large group as well. Even a crab race is possible. The child who is the fastest at the finish wins. The same applies here: Only crawling on all fours will bring you the victory at the end.
