Game description

An obstacle course is set up. A player sits in a trolley with a stick. The second player pushes the trolley. Objects must be scooped up or hit along the way.


On the way around the course little tubs of water can be collected and taken to the finishing line. In this version, the person in the wheelbarrow will not remain dry.


The number of objects struck or collected in are counted up (e.g. amount of water) and the time needed for the course is recorded.
