Dragons Tail

Game Description: 
A great game that teaches team work and imagination.
Each group (each dragon) needs a "dragon's tail", typically some kind of pinky or flag. The players split in groups of equal sizes; each group should have at least 3 or 4 members. Each group represents 1 dragon. The members of the groups are standing behind each other; everyone is holding the shoulders of the person in front of him or her. The first person in the row is the dragon's head, his arms are free. The last person in the row carries the dragon's tail. He or she puts the tail in his back pocket (or belt, or where it can be easily put in and taken out again) so that it does not fall out unintended, but can easily be taken by another dragon. Once the game starts, the dragon's heads try to steal the tails of other dragons. Each dragon may not split, so all members of the group have to stay in touch with the person in front of and behind them all the time. Winner of the game is the last remaining dragon with a tail.
