Game description

At the beginning of the game, the group is divided into teams of two or three players. Each team receives two or three bales of straw. The objective is to get from the starting to the finishing line, on the bales without ever touching the ground with hands of feet. The way you do that is by always putting one bale in front of the other one until you are there. Depending on how tight the bales are pressed, you should make sure you have enough spare bales. It does happen, that some bales will fall apart.


The winner is the team that has reached the destination first.
