Game description

As soon as the candidate comes to the starting line, he receives a long, sturdy rod. On each end of the rod, a rubber strap is secured on which a bucket of water hangs. The objective now is to put the rod with the water buckets on the child’s shoulder and he has to cover an area from A-B as quickly as possible while at the same time, spill as little as possible water. The difficulty with this game, are the buckets on the strap as they will sway with every movement.


The winner is either the candidate who has carried the two buckets the fastest or the one who has lost the least water.
