How To Play Tug of Water War!

Before the game starts place all the objects at a hidden place where you it is not too difficult to find. Do not let players know where the objects are but clues can be given.

Divide into 2 equal groups. Get a pool of water and store it in an inflatable baby pool (to avoid injuries) and place it in between the 2 teams and start your tag of war!!. Whoever trips over into the pool of water they get eliminated. And the group left with less member will have to fight their best to win an impossible tag of war!!! Until one team wins!

(While the tag of war is going on, the members of the team that tumble into the pool have to fill in water into as many balloons as they can. They are going to fight back for a winning chance!)

The tag of war team winners have to find the objects instructed while escaping from water balloons that the lost team attacked with. Any tag of war winning members who gets splashed by the water balloon is eliminated (hence, water balloon has to burst and drench the person otherwise they still survive). Remaining survivors can never give up and must continue.

If the tag of war winning team manage to collect all the objects, passed it to the host and survived from the water balloons then they are the WINNERS. Otherwise the lost team becomes the WINNER!

Hence the more open the space the less challenge it is for the game. When you play you will know why.

Materials Needed

LOTS OF WATER, Balloons, a rope and a few various objects for the tag of war winners to complete their mission (anything will do eg. Spoon, flags, toys, or if you want it to be more challenging > EGGS as they have to collect & return all objects in its original form)
