Game description

Whenever there is boredom coming up try the egg and spoon race for once. This could be the slogan for this old but popular game. Because of the rulers, this is a not an everyday alternative to the egg and spoon race. To begin with, divide the group into two teams. Unfold the folding rulers to its full length and place a coin on its far end. Now the objective is to get the coin without falling down across an obstacle course. This is not easy because the unfolded ruler is very wobbly. Anyway, the participant has to walk back the same way and pass the folding ruler and coin on to the next player.


To make this game interesting and worthwhile, you do not necessarily use a coin. You can use any object of your choice which is not too big and not too heavy.


The team which finishes first wins
