Two teams of equal strength stand on a playing field divided by a rope or a line – the boundary. The aim of the game is to draw all players of the opposing team onto their own field. Everything is allowed , except to pull on the clothes. Chains may be formed in order to advance further into the opponent’s field of play. But beware: once a player has been dragged to the other side, he or she is out of the game and the team he came from has to continue playing with one person less.
After some time, the game management gradually reduces the playing field to speed up the game.
Tip: In mixed groups (different ages) it is a good idea to split the game so that the smaller ones don’t get into the fray of the bigger ones – because it can get really rough.
