The Cardboard 500


This is a relay racing game that pits two teams against one another. You can make this an up-front game or play this anywhere everyone! Choose two teams with an equal amount of players. Each team must have a durable piece of cardboard, that is the EXACT SAME SIZE!

Put a starting line and finish line on the floor. Have both teams line up at the starting line, facing the finish line.
The goal of the game is to be the team with all of your members on the other side of the finish line, first. The first person from each team uses the cardboard as a sled and pulls the second person from the starting line to the finish line. Then the second person runs back to the starting line with the cardboard and pulls the third person to the finish line. This repeats until all players have been moved to the finish line.

If a student falls off between the starting line and the finish line, he/she must return to the starting line.

The first team with ALL students across the finish line wins! Have the crowd cheer them on!
