Game description

In the beginning, each participant receives one piece of carpet. If that is not available, you can use a correspondingly big piece of cardboard just as well. The objective is, to cross the swamp in which a terrible monster resides. This is a game, where team spirit counts. Each participant must be quick, because if he puts a tile down and does not step on it quickly, it will disappear in the swamp and therefore is lost for the other kids as well. The same is true if the next player is too slow to step on it. Everyone who touches the swamp with any part of their body will be eaten by the swamp monster and must return to the starting point. There are no winners or losers because they all must work together to get to the other side. In the case that they are running out of tiles, it is advisable to regroup and work out a better strategy.


There is no rating; this is a group effort
