Game description

Before the game can even begin a volunteer has to come forth who is willing to climb a ladder up and down. However, this ladder is only held by the other kids. This support has to be in several places along the ladder so that it really can’t fall over. Once all participants have taken on their position, the volunteer can begin to climb up the ladder.


If you are lucky enough for more than one volunteer to come forth, then the fastest kid will win.
