Game description

Hopping on one leg is a challenge for many. But what happens if you suddenly have 3 legs? No doubt about it, there will be a lot to laugh. Divide the group into pairs of tows each and tie them together by the ankle. The objective is to cover a certain distance with the time being stopped.


This game becomes so much harder if you implement hurdles as well. Completing a slalom on three legs is harder as it sounds. For security reasons, this game should be played only on a meadow or on a carpeted floor. It may happen that the one or other stumbles and falls. Whether he is disqualified or may continue is up to the team leader’s rules, which of course have to be established before the game starts.


The fastest team wins the game.
