Game description

If the group leaders need a good night’s sleep, this game for 6-20 players should tire the kids out. The following is required: A round playing field (approx 60m diameter) and a 12-15m long rope. The group is split into two teams with equal strength. However to avoid any danger of injury, children and adults should not be in the same group. Both groups should now stand in the centre of the circle. The rope is tied together at the ends and is wrapped around both groups. The rope should be held at hip level. The aim of the game is to be the first team to pull themselves out of the playing field. If the two teams are equally strong, the team who is better organised will win. A referee should watch game so that it does not get out of control and nobody gets injured. (This game idea was sent by Michael S. from Portugal)


One point for each team member who reaches the edge.
