Chain Tiggy or Octopus game

One Guide chases all of the others, and those caught join hands to form a chain until everyone is caught and joined on to the chain. When they are chasing and

catching only the ‘free’ hands at the ends of the chain can touch and catch other Guides.

note : if this game gets to fast on the tail ends the guides may be ‘flug’ around.  To avoid accidents the Leader must supervise the pace of the game. Stop the game and remove with time out of one minute or the repeating twice of all the Guide Laws …loudly.  If a second Guides is pulled out then finish the game immediately.

This game is similar to the fish tail game

In the pond game.

Everyone stands in circle, outside a line drawn on the ground.

Leader calls “in the pond”, “on the bank””in the pond”, “on the bank”, “on the bank” “in the pond”.

the aim is to trick players to do the wrong thing, “on the pond” and “in the bank” can also be used to confuse them.

When the directions are continuously called the Leader must point to the Guides that have not acknowledged they did not follow the instruction [They jumped without listening and went the wrong side of the line.]  Anyone making a wrong move takes two steps back and repeats the Promise or the next one of the Guide Laws until these have all been repeated.  Once the Promise and the Laws have been repeated once through then the game has finished.

Form two lines into a relay formation.

Pass a spoon of water along the team to fill bottle or container.

When the teaspoon spills the water the teaspoon still has to go to the very end of the line before the last person passes the bucket or container along to the person before her and then runs up to the front of the line to receive the teaspoon, fill the spoon up and carefully start the teaspoons journey yet again..

1 team is called crows, the other is called cranes.

When 1 team is called out, they turn and run and touch

the wall behind them and the other team chases them.

Clapping Game Za Macarajah

Guides stand in a circle and extend their hands so that each person’s right hand is in front of the next person’s left hand.

Everyone says the rhyme below in time.

The first Guide uses her right hand to clap the hand of the Guide on her left, returns her hand to the original position and the clap passes round the circle.

The person clapping at ‘tap tap tap’ (refer to rhyme), claps three times. On ‘three’, the person must clap the hand of the Guide on her left—if she misses she’s out and sits inside the circle. If she hits the hand of the Guide on her left, then the Guide who got hit is out and she sits inside the circle.

The rhyme is
