Game description

If you want to entertain a group of up to 10 people, then is the Train in the Swamp the right game for you. For this game to work all you need is to have all kids line up one behind the other with their hands on their shoulder. Just as with a polonaise. However, the last guy of the group is the train operator; he directs where the train is going. For example, a light pressure on the shoulder could indicate, where the train is going. In the beginning, you can make it, right pressure and the train goes right and the same on the other side. If the kids are familiar with this system, you could reverse it. Left means right. To make it even more difficult, you could put up a few hurdles along the way.


Alternatively, you can create two groups that compete against each other. However, there should be at least 10 participants for each team


A race against time. How long does it take to get from A-B through the maze of hurdles? This way you can implement a second and see if the coordination improved the second time around.
