Game description

Before the game even begins, divide the group into polar bears and Eskimos. While the Eskimos hide in an igloo, polar bears have to stay outside. The igloo can be either a large blanket or a tarpaulin, which can be pulled down behind the back of the Eskimos, which have to sit in a circle. The objective for the polar bears is to grab an Eskimo by his leg and drag him out of the igloo. Then the Eskimo becomes a polar bear as well.


The winner is the player who manages to stay longest in the igloo.
