Game description

Before the game begins, divide the group into two equal teams. Each team gets assigned an equal pile of straw. The objective is to get the straw from the starting point to the finishing line. For safety reasons let them only use their hands instead of a fork. Needless to say, they should not lose any straw on their way.


It is also possible to distribute the straw over a large area in a meadow. In this case, the team must try to collect as much straw with a waggon.


The winner is the team which got the hay the fastest from A – B or has collected the most straw
