How To Play French Vs English
20 or so items (balls or bowling pins etc)
First off I wanted to say that this is probably one of my all time favourite youth group games. It is one of those games that just involves burning off a lot of energy!
The basic idea is that there are two teams, and three dividing lines (ie. two halves of a playing field). Put an equal amount of the objects behind both baselines.
Each team needs to aim to steal as many of the objects as possible, without getting caught.
To steal an object the player must successfully make it to the other teams baseline without being tagged. Once they are there they can steal 1 object and release 1 captive team-mate (if there are any).
If the player is tagged while on the other teams half of the playing field, they are caught and must wait at the oppositions baseline until they are rescued.
Think that's pretty much it!
