Game description

The witches' broom can be the core element for many catching-, as well as hide and seek games. The warlock is riding his broom, while all the other kids run away and make sure he cannot catch them. The objective is to get them into a marked area or circle which represents a jail. The objective would be to get all the kids into this area within a certain time. The alternative would be as soon as he catches one kid, they change role. The captured kid now becomes the warlock. Another way to play this game is like the original catching game, only this time all kids ride on a broom. If you want to play hide and seek, all kids have to ride on a broom. The challenge here is, even you found a top hiding place for yourself, you need to make sure, that your broom too is well hidden.


The winner is determined by the variation which is played
