Team games: Stacker Battle

Contributed by: Luke Shaw, Diocese of Nelson

stackerbattleDivide your group into two teams within a square playing area. Each team has a table, a stack of paper or plastic cups and a couple of old newspapers.

Each team designates two ‘builders’. The rest of the team become ‘throwers’ or ‘defenders’ within the area. Teams must attempt to build the highest stack of cups possible within the time limit while fighting off paper balls. The builders build, the throwers try and knock over the other team’s stacks and the defenders stand in the middle taking the brunt of the paper.
