Game description

In the beginning, a lone backpack sits on stage. To the back bag a sign is attached, saying 100kg. Now, the first actor steps on stage and announces that he now would go to the gym, and has packed his back bag already for this occasion. But the backpack seems literally to be glued to the floor. No matter how hard he tries, he can’t move the back bag. Now, in despair, he calls the neighbour for help. After he mocked the first person for quite some time, the neighbour gives it a go. However, his efforts are in vain as well. A person walking past offers his help, yet, again there is no progress. Not even for all three trying would the bag move. Finally, on has the brilliant idea to call Peter, the Wise Man, for help. Peter appears and inspects the situation from all possible angles while scrolling through his clever book. Finally, he closes his book, removes the sign from the back bag, picks it up and leaves the stage.
