Game of the Week
Equipment required: Minefield (8 x 8 squares) set out. This can be a taped grid on the floor, and you can make it harder by making a bigger grid.
- Start by picking a facilitator. This person is the judge and will tell players when they’ve crossed the minefield successfully or fallen into a trap.
- One person at a time must attempt to cross the battlefield without stepping on a mine. Once a team member steps on a mine, they must return back to the start.
- Only one person is allowed on the minefield at any time.
- One at a time, players must step on the mat and attempt to cross. If unsuccessful in their attempt to cross, they go to the back of the line and the next person goes.
- Once a participant is on the minefield, no one can provide hints.
- Active participants can only move one square at a time. A move can be in any direction.
- Only the facilitator knows which squares are safe and will indicate appropriately.
- The first person to cross successfully is the winner.
