Game description

At least 6-9 newspaper pages are taped together to make a large tarp. All group members must hold the tarp, balance an object (cotton ball, balloon) on top of it. And carry it to the goal. This game can also be played as a relay race.


Instead of a relay race the game starts as soon as the equipment is handed over. After 10 minutes the game is over and the number of transported balloons are counted up. The aim is therefore to build a tarp as quickly as possible (which does not fall apart) and to transport as many balloons (or rounds of balloons) as possible.


The number of transported balloons are counted or the number of rounds completed with the balloon on the tarp. The tarp must still be in one piece at the end.
