-Setting Up:

  • Have each team place 10 triangles (with their colour up--red or blue) in different places throughout the playing area.

  • Players then stand anywhere along the outside edge of the playing area.


  • On the signal to  begin players go into the playing area and attempt to flip one bar at a time of the opposite team's bars. Players can only flip one bar and then need to go to another triangle--players cannot flip two bars from one triangle before going to another triangle.

  • At the signal to begin count the number of triangles that are a solid red or a solid blue--the winning team is the one which has the most triangles in their colour.
