Game description

Chair lifting can be designed as a competition for entertainment or as a sporting event in the group. To give rise to a competitive atmosphere, the group leader should keep his stopwatch ready. The objective is for each player to hold a chair by its legs while lifting it up horizontally. This game encourages strength, coordination as well as balance. The reason: The chair must be maintained in proper position so that it does not tilt forward, sideways or backwards.


For larger groups, two or more participants can compete directly against each other. The winner takes the next round and will have to compete there with another opponent. Repeat this process, until a final group winner, is determined.


If the contestants participate successively, the player who can hold the chair the longest wins. If more than one player competes at the time, then you will not need the stopwatch.
