Game description

The group is divided into two groups and then again, those two teams form groups of two each. You too will need two tables. The objective no is, for each team to lift the table up with an object laying on it. The objective is to get him as far as possible to the finishing line. There the stretcher is passed on to the next two constants. Alternatively, you can have a light child laying on the table. Skilful cooperation is required to get the person where he needs to be.


Instead of a solid object or a person you could also use foam cubes or water-filled cups to be carried on the table surface. In this case, it depends on both speed as well as great care not to spill the water.


The winner is the fastest team. Alternatively, you could rate them by how much objects each teams brings to the destination or how much water they have spilled.
