How To Play Goldfish Gauntlet
Tarpaulin, A Bowl full of Live Goldfish, Several cans of sliced Peaches, Blindfolds, Stopwatch.
This game is great when done infront of a crowd.
Select four people from the crowd to be your players. The best people to get, are squirmish girls (You'll see why in a moment). Get the players to take their shoes and socks off, and stand on the short end of the tarpaulin. (At this stage, the goldfish and peaches should remain hidden).
Then get someone to bring out the goldfish, and tell the players that you will be putting the goldfish out onto the tarpaulin, and their aim is to walk across the tarpaulin without squashing any of them! Now blindfold them.
Instead of putting the goldfish out, spread the sliced peaches all over the tarpaulin. While this is happening, it's best to tip off the crowd (Maybe with signs so the players can't hear) and get them to play along... making "ooooh!" sounds whenever the players step on peaches.
Once that's done, get the players to run across the tarpaulin one at a time. The fastest player wins a prize!
This is great fun to watch. Especially when the players freak out, thinking they've stepped on a goldfish. It's also a great way to get the crowd involved.
