Game description

Before the leaky cup starts, the players are divided into two teams. Each team receives a cup, which several holes. (The team leader will have to prepare that before the game). Both teams line up at the starting line and receive the leaky cup which gets filled up right before the start. The objective for each team now is to run as quickly as possible to the finishing line and pour the remaining water into a bucket. For this game, coordination and skill are equally important.


The winner is the fastest team; or the one with the most water in the cup.
