Game description

For this game, you will need a few large rolls of hay. The objective for the participant is to balance on top of the roll and get it moving forward. Very similar to balancing on a rolling barrel. Because this game is not completely harmless, the participants should wear good protective equipment. Potential hazards: falling from the roll of hay, being run over by it, getting caught and tangled up in the hay-bands. Therefore, always have two assistances available who can help quickly in the case of an accident.


There is no rating for this game. This is not a competition, but a task to me jointly mastered by the group to encourage team spirit.
