-Mise en place:

  • Set up the six tubes in a circle about 10+ paces apart.

  • Teams of 3 to 6 players stand behind their tube with their 12 markers on the ground.


  • On the signal to begin, each player picks up one of their coloured markers and place the marker in any tube.

  • Once players place a marker in any tube, they find another of their coloured markers and place it in a different tube—players may only use their coloured markers.

  • Once the time is up players freeze.

  • Points are scored as follows:

  • Bottom marker is worth 10 points

  • Any markers on the ground or in players' hands scores -1.

  • Play again.

-Questions et notes:

  • Notes: Be an opportunity to discuss that this game is not quite like toothpaste. Toothpaste, once it comes out of the tube it almost impossible to put the toothpaste back into the tube. The words we say can almost never be taken back--use your words wisely.

  • Adapted from Jordan Stolp at New York Shape conference 2019
