Push the Bomb

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Push the 'Bomb' as far away as possible, using pioneering skills


Ropes/Rubber Bands
1 x Tin Can (per team)
1 x Table Tennis Ball (per team)


Players must push the 'bomb' away from their base.

They must not cross the start line, and can only use pioneering skills to make a rod long enough to move the bomb. The 'Bomb' is a tin can with a ping pong ball balanced on top. If the ball falls off, the bomb explodes and the team must start again, although they can use their existing rod.

At the end of the time, the team with the greatest distance wins.
