All play: Superhero

Contributed by: Luke Shaw, Diocese of Nelson

superheroThis is a thinking/strategy game. The youth are grouped on one side of an imaginary divide and must cross it to survive. The only way they can cross is if the ‘superhero’ (with a super prop of some kind) is carrying them.

However, once the superhero has crossed once, they can no longer be superhero, someone else has to be who hasn’t already touched the ground.

The superhero prop cannot be thrown across the divide.

This is where the thinking comes in. How do you cross the divide with such a puzzle to ponder?

(The secret lies in the superhero carrying more than one person at a time, but keep that a secret…)
