Red Card Run


2-3 Packs of cards

Game Description

Split the Beavers into 2 equal teams (3 if you have a large colony) and arrange them into lines with a cone about 15-20m away.

A leader stands at the front of each team holding the (shuffled) pack of cards.

When you say go - each leader shows the first member of the team the first card.

If it is black then the Beaver goes to the back of the line and the next card is shown to the next Beaver.

If it is red the Beaver runs around the cone and comes back to look at the next card - if it is red they run again etc.

This continues and the first team to get to the end of the pack of cards is the winner.

This can be very tiring especially if you have a lot of red cards in a row.
