Game description

The group marks out railway track with a band (marking tape) in the woods. The other group (the Red Indians) try to ambush the railway tracks in that they remove the bands. The tracks can be marked out in straight lines amongst approx. 10 trees. The railway track guards now try to defend their track. Depending on the size of the group and area available, the size of the playing area and the amount of tracks can be adapted accordingly. The game rules should be discussed beforehand. Options might be to decide if prisoners can be taken and how (tagging, grappling, Paper-stone-scissors, pulling a piece of string etc.).


There are only winners and losers.
