Divide the players into 2 teams, standing in single file with their hands on the waists of the players in front of them. At the opposite end of the space place 2 chairs. When the leader gives the signal the teams have to run around the chair and back. While running, players can’t take their hands off the waist of the person in front of them. If the chain is broken the team looses the game. The team also looses the game if it overturns or doesn’t turn around the chair.
Variation: The teams must run round the chair in a squatting position.
Required: 2 chairs
Divide players into two large teams (‘dragons’ ). Players form a line holding the waist of the team-mate in front. The last person in the line has a brightly coloured scarf or piece of material tucked into his/her trousers or belt. (This is the ‘dragon’s tail’). The object of the game is to catch the tail of the other dragon without losing your own tail in the process.
Variations: More than two dragons or one dragon and have the front person try to catch his/her own tail.
Required: Two or more coloured scarfs or pieces of cloth for ‘dragon’s tails’.
Players are divided into 2 teams and then sit facing each other across a table. One group is given a coin or similar object. The coin should be passed from one member of the team to the other. The object of the game is to prevent the opposite team from guessing where the coin is at any time. Each player on the opposite team is allowed to call one of the commands in turn. At the command “Hop” the coin must be shown over the table. At the command “Dop” – it is again hid under the table, where the players continue to pass it from hand to hand. At the command “Hands on the table!” the players put their hands on the table with the palms down. The leader of the opposite team must guess who has the coin beneath his/her palms. If he/she guesses, the coin is passed to the opposite team and the game begins anew.
Required: one or more long tables as needed and a chair for each player
