Game description

Basically, the Big Push works similar to rope pulling, only in reverse. The group is divided into two equal teams. Those face each other at the table. The objective is to push each other out of the field, which has to be marked before the game can begin. It is important that the team leader keeps a close eye on safety issues. For example, lifting the table is not allowed as this can lead to injuries. Should one kid fall to the ground, the game has to stop until the kid is on his feet again. Only then the game can be resumed with everyone starting back in the original position.


The winner is the team that can push off their opponents.
