Owls and Crows



Game Description

Team A stands in a line side-by-side in the centre of the play area. Team B stands facing team A, about 1m / 3ft away.

Each team has a "safe base" 4 - 5m / 10 - 15ft behind them. Opposing walls in a large room work well, or make a boundary line if outside. One team is named the "Owls", the other the "Crows". The leader makes a statement.

If the statement is true, the owls chase the crows. If the statement is false, the crows chase the owls. Anyone caught before reaching their safe base must join the other team.
