Preparation and Needed Materials
Surprisingly you won’t need a boat for this race, all you need are your teammates, a game master, and the following:
– Chalk for marking the finish line (optional) or any abject.
How to Play the Boat Racing Game
Step 1: The game master assigns a group of two teams of equal number (Team A and Team B). A finish line is marked at the far end of the play area. Let’s say each team has seven players. Each team will form a line. The first players of both teams will move forward to play compete against each other.
Step 2: The game master will provide the instructions on how to play the game. When the game master signals “GO!” The first players from each team will play rock, paper, scissors.
Step 3: If player one from Team A wins, he will move back to the front of the line, and the last player (let’s say Player seven) from the line will advance to the spot to play against the first player from Team B.
Step 4: Player seven will then play rock, paper, scissors against Player one from Team B who remained on the spot. If player seven still wins the game, player seven from team A will move to the spot in front of the line, while player six will advance to go against player one from Team B.
Hence for every round won, the team’s line moves further and the last player on the line will be the one to play against the other team in rock, paper, scissors. The game goes on so that the two teams are racing to get to the finish line. The team to get to the finish line wins the game!
