Game description

In this relay race oranges must be squeezed between the knees and carried a 5m distance and then put into a basket. You are only allowed to use your hands to put the orange between your knees. If the candidate drops the orange, he has to pick it up, run back to the starting line and start all over again. However, if he makes it to the basket, then he has to put the orange in without further using his hands.


Variante1: On the way to the basket the candidate has to overcome hurdles, such as a ramp or crossing a bar.
Variante2: Even when picking up the orange and placing it between your knees you are not allowed to use your hands.


The team receives one point for every orange in the basket.
