Game description

If you ever want to play this game with your friends, you have to prepare thoroughly for it. Get some wool and roll it up to a ball. However, while you are doing so at certain intervals, sweets are wrapped into the ball of wool. Do that until everything is tightly wrapped in wool. Next, the kids start to cast the dice until the first kid receives a 6. And now it gets really funny. The player with the 6, has to put on a beanie, gloves, and a scarf. The objective now is to unfurl the ball of wool and eat all the candies he comes across. In the meantime, however, the rest of kids keep on casting the dice until the next kid receives a 6. Beanie, gloves and scarf are passed on to this particular kid, and he now unfurls the wool and collects the candies. The game is played until the ball of wool is completely undone.


The winner is the player who scored the most candy.
