I first saw this game on youtube a year or so ago and loved it right away. I’ve played it a few times at my gym (with some variations, see below) and the kids get a kick out of it too!
- To get out of “jail” there is a conditioning exercise to do OR, if it’s summer camp or I feel like having a laugh, the kids they have to tell me a joke, etc.
- With younger kids (or lower level rec kids) who have’t mastered controlled handstand walking, I add more mats, floor dots, sliders, or odd props to help them move to the treasure.
- Have someone be a “shark” — they move around the floor (or on the equipment — just one or the other) and they can “bite” by tagging the others. When bitten, you go to jail.
