Steal The Keys

An active, relaxed game for junior youth and small groups

How To Play Steal The Keys

Materials Needed

Metal Bowl or Billy Can
A Chair
Rolled Up Newspaper/Nerf Sword/Pool Noodle

Put the keys in the metal bowl, and place it under the chair.

Everyone makes a wide circle around the chair.

A Person is blindfolded, and Sits in the chair, armed with the Newspaper/Nerf Sword.

The Blind Man must defend the keys, if he connects with someone that person is either out, or sent back to start again.

The objective is to sneak up and get the keys from the bowl, back to the starting area, without being hit.

The successful sneaker gets to be the next blind man.

It can be played in turns, or all at once, which makes for fast competitive sneaking.

A Leader can also direct, selecting one or more child to attempt at the same time.

As an adaptation, this game is great in the dark.

I remember playing this never 30 years ago at cubs and we loved it.

no one ever got injured and we used to point to the person but it couldn't be a sweeping point, ie arm out point made, recoil and resend.

theres other games I am looking for that I remember vaguely from cubs, for a group I am at now

I have played something like this. The blind man is wearing a crown and the sneaker has to get it off. If the sneaker is tagged he is out or restarts. I think I like your version better because the blind man in my version could simply put his hands above the crown, although he is not allowed to touch the crown.
