Smash The Barrel


A Barrel or Chair

Game Description

All the players link hands and form a circle round the barrel. The barrel is positioned in the middle of the circle.

A leader says "GO" and everybody starts to pull. The object is to pull somebody into the middle of the circle so they knock the barrel over. If they knock it over they are out.

You carry on until everybody is out. The last person in wins.

If played with a lot of players then split them into 2 games and when about half are out, join the 2 games into 1 and all those who are out can start a new game, this means those who are out get a second game!!
