-Mise en place:

  • Two players out of every 8-15 players are given two pool noodles each.

  • The rest of the players are in a scattered position throughout the playing area.


  • The two players with pool noodles try and catch a player inbetween their four pool noodles and bring them to a corner of the playing area.

  • Once there are a few players in the corners, the leader can call out "stampede" and the herd is back onto the field (playing area) again.

  • Switch the herders from time-to-time.

-Questions et notes:

  • Variations:

  • Have all players gallop or skip or...

  • Questions for Understanding:

  • How can the herders most effectively capture the herd?

  • How can the herd most effetively not get caught?

  • With thanks to Robert Matheson from CIRA Ontario for first demonstrating this game to me.
