Game description

In this game, participants must toss and prove their skill. Two players will be chained together with string and must try to free themselves from the shackles, without tearing the string. Of course, the game can be played by several teams at the same time. In this case, the winner of the game would be the team which finished first. To begin, a 90 cm long string is loosely tied around the participants’ hands. The string has to be pulled through between the body and hands of the kids to make it all a little harder, In their attempt to free each other, they are not allowed to tear or untie the string. Solution: one of the kids takes the string of his partner and pulls it backwards underneath the hand loop, then above the Hand and once again through the hand loop. Now the strings are not attached to each other anymore. However, while unravelling the string, it must not twist for this to work.


If you have several teams to compete against each other, the fastest wins. Otherwise, the fun of it counts.
