Horseshoe chase

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


a team building game which also makes the beavers think in advance before they try to sit down!




Each young person sits on a chair in a horseshoe formation. Arrange the horseshoe so that Scout can exit in double file
Shout "Go!" - on this command, all of the Scouts run out of the horseshoe and around the outside in a clockwise direction
While this is happening, you sit on one of the chairs
The return into the mouth of the horseshoe and quickly sit on a chair. One player will be left standing, and they are "out"
The game continues in the same manner until one player (the winner) is left. As players become 'out' they remain sitting on a chair, thus removing it from play. (This also means your horse shoe remains the same size and shape throughout the game)
