"Play is the highest form of research"
Albert Einstein

a SlowTech Game

* Age:                  6 +
* Participants:    6
* Place:                indoor and outdoor

* Material:         one metal ring with 6 all equally long ropes (i.e. thin climbing ropes), a light ball that fits in the ring (little bit bigger than the ring), a plastic cone to put he ball on, as a reaching goal.

* Organization:  circle
* Objectives:      communication / cooperation / concentration
* Description:

First we need to tie the equally long ropes to the ring. To make sure the participants will hold the rope all at the same distance, we can make a knot 10 cm away from the end of each rope. In the beginning of the game we put the ring with the ropes on the ground with the ball in the ring. Then the participants need to lift up the ring without making the ball fall down.  In the next step the team has to transport the ball
and put it on top of the cone at a distance of 10 meters. Either we play it inside or outside, we should put some obstacles on their way to make the game more challenging. If the team manages to reach the cone with the ball, they are asked to bring the ball back to the starting point.
Variation: 1-2 persons of the group can close their eyes while transporting the ball, being directed by voice by the rest of the team.
