Game description

Mark the ground with a circle. The more children, the bigger the circle needs to be. The kids are divided, those who are in the circle and those who are outside. The objective is, to pull each other into one’s pond. In the circle, the fish and the fishermen outside. The team which either pulls all kids in or out of the circle wins. However, timing is another way. It is important that this game is played on solid ground. – Better on grass than on concrete.


The winner is the team which pulled the most kids in or out of the circle. As soon as a child is pulled across the circle line, it becomes a fish or fisherman himself.
