Game description

Before the actual game can begin, 4 -8 bowls are stacked together to a tower. Participants must balance this tower through and complete an obstacle course without it falling apart. You can play more than one round and slowly increase the difficulty. For example, the tower can be replaced with another tower, which has more or different size bowls. In other words, the tower is a little bit less stable. Another option is to build the tower on an at least 1m long board. The objective would be for two kids to balance board and tower over a hurdle.


The winner is the player or team who has completed the course the fastest, whose tower didn’t fall over either.
