Game description

Pot hitting has been popular for years – especially among the little ones. A old pot is hidden somewhere in the room once the players have been blindfolded and turned around 4-5 times. Armed with a wooden spoon the players must find the pot. Assistance can be given by shouting out whether they are hot or cold. There is a sweet under the pot.


2 group members make up teams. One of the players in each pair is blindfolded and span around several times to lose their direction. Now a saucepan is hidden in the room. The blindfolded players must now try to be first to find the pot. The receive instructions from their partner who is only allowed to shout "hot" or "cold". With lots of players this communication game is really confusing. No one is allowed to wave their spoon around wildly due to the risk of injury.


No scoring is really necessary or: how long will it take to find the pot?
