Description of the Game

What are the rules? How do we play?

Set out a grid of 5 squares by squares - you could use chalk or cones

Mark one square as the start, and one as the finish

The aim of the games is to get the whole team from start to finish without stepping in quicksand

Players can only step forwards, backwards, left or right, NOT diagonally. Only one member of the team may be inside the grid at any one time.

Use the maps provided, or create your own on the blank template.

Player 1 starts, the leader will shout STOP if they step in quick sand and they have to go back to the start.
