Stolen eggs

An area for the play is divided into two parts. In each of them we draw a small circle divided into two halves with a stick. In one part we place cones (or stones) which symbolise our eggs. The task of the players is to steal the cones from the opponent`s nest and put them into the empty half of own nest. Every time the players can bring only one egg. If the participant puts his/her feet on an unfamiliar land, he/she can be "handcuffed" when the person from the opponent's team touches him/her. Then the players should come to a standtill. Only a companion from the same team can “unchain” the person who is “handcuffed”, also by touch. The winner is the team which will bring all the opponent`s eggs to his/her own nest.

There will be new, modernized versions of old games and backyard plays which sometimes will go beyond the literal interpretation. Traditional games will be an inspiration, "new games" more or less free interpretation.
