Game description

This is a game for children to train their perception wonderfully. The whole thing takes place under the table. The game leader gives the first child, for example, 3 corks. Then they are passed on to the next kid. Then the game leader gives out maybe another 7 corks which are also passed on. The game becomes more difficult, the faster the game leader hands out corks because the kids have only a little time to add them all up. In the end, everybody says the number of corks he came up with.


The winner is the one with the correct result. Of course, there could be several winners. However, if it comes to adding up really quickly, that is not all that easy. You definitely need to concentrate and have some good maths skills. It is said that there are adults who are not able to add up as quickly as necessary for this game.
