Game description

There are many ideas for an obstacle course which can take place on a piece of grass, a playground or even in a sports hall. If there are 3-4 possible obstacles available, it’s enough.


An individual judging can take place or as soon as a person has completed the course it is the next person’s turn. The group’s overall time is noted down.
