A pack of cards per group


Each group starts at one end of the play space, a leader stands in front of each group with a pack of cards. one by one the players are shown a card if it is red they run to the other end of the game area and back to end of their group line, if the card is black then they go straight to the back of the group, then next card is shown to the next player when the previous player reaches the back of their group, the first team to use the full pack of cards wins. Note the packs of cards should be shuffled. To make the game more difficult set different options for the suit on the card eg hearts could be run, diamonds skip, spades go backwards and the clubs miss a go.
