Game description

A bucket filled with water is attached to 4-6 ropes. The group members hold the ropes and try to fill the water into a tub (or 2nd bucket). The important thing is that players do not touch the bucket.


If there is a pool or a stream nearby the bucket can be refilled there to empty the contents into a tub. The hands are also not allowed to touch the bucket in this version.


Either the time is taken which the group needs to fill the bath or the amount of water filled in a certain amount of time is measured.
