Game description

To begin with, divide the group into two equal teams. Next, the players of both teams have to stay back to back, while the players of each team are holding hands. At the beginning where the two teams are lining up stands a chair with a spoon on top. The team leader goes to the other end of the line. All kids are looking towards the chair with the spoon while the team leader tosses the coin up into the air. However, the last two players are allowed to watch the coin. If for example, the head of the coin comes up, the kids will let the front player know by a handshake and that they can grab the spoon now. The objective is, to respond quickly, getting the message to the front player. The team leader writes down which team won and the front players may come to the end of the row now. This will be a particularly long game. Given that there is great tension during the game, it can happen that the kids give the wrong signal. If that happens and the front player grabs the spoon even he is not supposed to, the entire team receives a penalty point.


The team with the most points wins.
