The Duster Game


Duster or a bottle, rolled up newspaper, stick etc

Game Description

Two teams are chosen and stand in line at opposite sides of the room. Each team member gets a number while the team on the other side gets the same numbers.

A circle is drawn in the centre and a duster is placed in it. The leader calls a number and it is a race between the two with the same number to get to the duster and run back to their side without being caught.

If the player with the duster is caught the other side gets a point.

The rule is that as long as the person with the duster has it held within the circle that person cannot be caught by the other.

It is a game of quick thinking to try and get away without being caught.
