Game description

At the beginning of the game, each player receives a blanket to sit on. The objective is while sitting on the blanket to reach the finishing line. However, they are not allowed to get up or use their hands in any way. To make it easier to withstand the temptation of using their hands they have to hold a coaster with both hands. In other words, to move forward, they can only use their hands and backside. The player who crosses the finishing line first wins the game.


If you do not have enough blankets available, a fun alternative to this game would be, that more than one child is sitting on the blanket. In this case, it is not as much about winning the game but to have fun. If more children are sitting on the blanket, this is not all that easy. It will take some time until all participants have found a rhythm and are able to coordinate their movements.


The one who crosses the finishing line first wins.
