Game description

This game is very similar to Javelin, just with a little difference. Instead of a spear, the participants receive a hay fork. From a marked starting line, they have to throw a hay fork as far as possible. However, it is up to the team leader to ensure that no child is in the “firing line”. That could lead to painful injuries. Every throw, where the prongs get stuck in the soil scores a point. You can play more than one rounds.


The winner is the player who could throw the hay fork the farthest or manages the greatest total distance.
