Game description

An almost forgotten classic game which provides a lot of fun at any children's party are the stilts. As in the classic game, the participants have to cover a predetermined area on stilts. However, in this variation, the stilts are replaced with ladders. Clowns are known to use stilts a lot as this gives them the freedom to do little acrobatic acts. Here, instead of the stilts, the participants walk on ladders. After all participants had a little time to practice with the ladders, the real race can begin. As soon as the start signal sounds, the participants come to the start line and climb on their ladder, then trying to get to the finishing line as fast as possible.


The winner is the participant who gets past the finishing line first.
