Game description

This funny catching game is also suitable for larger groups. At first glance, it reminds of the game the white shark or the black man but offers a lot more possibilities. To begin with all kids, divide into two equal groups, who line up along a middle line, so that child has a counterpart. However, before the all line up, they have to decide who is the grandmother, the hunter, and the wolf. Those characters have to be played by pantomime. Hunter beats wolf, wolf beats grandmother, grandmother beats hunter. You need to pay attention to the game leader, who will decide which character is displayed. The team which represents the “lower” character, now quickly turns around and tries to reach the gym wall as quickly as possible before the winning team can catch up with them. Whoever is caught before reaching the wall, must change teams. This game is played until there is only one team left.


The winner is the team which completely wipes out their opponents.
