Shooting down tins with a ball of wool

Time: approx. 2 - 5 min.
Recommended age: from 8
Size of group: it doesn't matter
Time for preparation: none
Material: Cans and tins, ball of wool

Game description

On a table put several tins. Every candidate receives a ball of wool to shoot the tins off the table. The fact, that the cans are randomly placed and not as a pyramid or in a line will make the game a bit harder. After every throw, the ball of wool has to be rolled up again.


Option 1: The tins are constructed as a pyramid. Option 2: The tins stand successively as a couple. The bottom can is filled with something, the top can is empty. Only the top can be thrown off the table. Option 3: The ball of wool is knotted up so that it can’t unfurl and therefore does not have to be rolled up again after every throw.


You receive one point for each can
