Game description

10-20 sweets are hidden in a pile of hay or straw (or 1-2 balls of straw). The group has 60 seconds to find as many sweets as possible. Make sure that the teams do not simply throw the hay out of the container because the leader will need the straw for the next group. The amount of straw will decrease over time anyway.
