Sheep In The Pen


Appropriate number of chairs

Game Description

A horseshoe of chairs (the Pen) is placed in center of room with space on all sides. The scouts (sheep) run round the chairs until the whistle is blown. They then have to enter through the open end of the horseshoe and find a seat. The whistle is blown again and the scouts exit the Pen. Some of the chairs are then removed before the whistle is next blown. Anyone who fails to find a seat is out.

The last scout remaining is the winner.
