The aim of the game is to pull the rope on one side against the force of the opponent’s pull. The rope is marked in the centre and the team that pulls the rope up until the marked part reaches their defined region wins! However, there can be multiple rounds with different outcomes making this game a true nail-biter.

The ladder frame is set at a 15 feet distance and player have to throw the bolas from behind the wooden frame. Each of the 3 bars will fetch the player or the team different points. The top bar will help you secure 3 points and similarly, the middle and lowest bar will secure you 2 and 1 points respectively. While tossing the bolas in an underarm action, one can try to hit opponent’s bolas. However, if it falls down, the team will lose points as per the value of the wooden bar it was on.
Giant Pick up Sticks
The object of the game is to pick up the most sticks and collect the most points. To begin the game, a bundle of sticks are somewhat randomly distributed so that they end up in a tangled pile. The more tangled the sticks are, the more challenging the game is. Since each player attempts to remove a single stick, without moving any other sticks. Each colour stick you pickup gives you points. In some versions of the game, players use a tool to move the stick away from the pile. This “tool” may be one of the sticks, held aside before the game begins.
Giant Naughts & Crosses
The rope board easily spreads out on the ground and measures about 1.5m square. Each player gets 5 X’s and 4 O’s. The X player usually goes first and in order to win the game all you need to do is place 3 of your game pieces in a row either horizontal, vertical, or diagonal.
Playing this game will have you in knots, literally. With a flick of the arrow you can see what’s next as you keep your balance to have all your hands and feet on the mat. Left hand yellow! Keep on Reaching!! Right foot red! You got this! Keep your knees and elbows off the ground. Should you fall or your knee and elbows touch the mat, you are OUT. Last player standing WINS. On the other side, play Snakes & Ladders.
Giant Snakes & Ladders
Watch out for those slippery serpents as the race is on to reach the end square. Climb the Ladders and zip to the top. But watch out, if you land on a snake it will make you slide back down again. This game can be played from 2-8 players.
The aim of the Quoits Game is to toss the rings in an underarm action over the pegs. Each peg has different number of points, the first player to reach 500 points is the winner. The throwing distance in quoits game is around 3 meters, so each player must throw from behind the 3 meters line. If you want to make it more challenging then, you may increase the throwing distance.
The aim of the Scatter game is to knock over the numbered wooden pins by tossing the wooden baton. The wooden baton must be thrown in an underarm action. The players secure points as per the value of knocked down wooden pins. Each player gets a single try to hit the pins per round. To win the game a player must score 50 points exactly. If the total points secured from each round goes above 50, then the points are reduced back to 25. Meaning, they have to start scoring points beginning from 25 points. The first player to reach exactly at 50 points wins the game.
