An active, team-building, wide game for junior youth
How To Play Gargon
- A Flash light that can come apart into 4 Pieces (ie. handle, 2 batteries and the top bulb part.) if you have more pices that's okay!
- you need to be able to have the church or buliding available to play this game.
- make sure you can turn off all the Lights!!
This game is to be played in the dark and it an awesome choice to play as a night game on a youth camp.
Take apart the flashlight into it's parts and have the person who is "it" (the Gargon) to go around the building and hide all the pieces separately. EACH PIECE MUST BE VISIBLE IF THE LIGHTS WERE TURNED ON. (no hiding in cupboards and closets etc.)
Send the group into the area to hide and search for the flashlight parts. After one minute, the Gargon is sent out repeatedly saying "GARGON, GARGON". They must say it through out the whole game to warn of it's presence.
The goal of the group is to find each part of the flashlight, put it together, and shine it on the Gargon, ending the game.
HOWEVER; anyone the Gargon touches must sit down and is 'caught.' To be freed a person holding a part of the flashlight can touch the person who is 'caught.'
Note: If a person holding a flashlight part is 'caught' the flashlight part cannot be transferred to a new person. the Gargon takes it and re-hides the piece.
Hint: have the group find a set place to store the pieces during the game. So the pieces don't get taken by the Gargon all the time. Once they have them all then assemble the flashlight and catch the Gargon.
This game can sometimes take a long or a short time to finish.
THIS GAME CAN BE VERY DANGEROUS; make sure proper shoes are worn, be careful running and be cautious of other people.
