Game description

For this game, all participants will need a yo-yo ball, which is available in every toy store. Alternatively, they can use any other rubber ball and attach a string themselves. In the beginning, all candidates assemble at the starting line. In a distance of a few metres, the team leader puts up several cans or tins. Make sure that those tins are within reach of the yo-yo. The objective is to throw the ball towards the tins, while holding on to the string, yet, eliminate as many as possible tins. Every player gets as many attempts as there are tins on the board. To make the game a bit more exciting, you can put a time limit on the activity. In a tie, have the winner playing against each other.


The winner is the player who can shoot the most tins from the board.
