Rattlesnake Hunter Camping Game
|Required:||6 to 12 campers.|
tin with dried beans in it.
sock stuffed with paper.
|Instructions:||Campers stand in a big circle. Two campers are blindfolded inside the circle. One is the hunter and has the sock to use to kill the rattlesnake. The other is the rattlesnake with a tin rattler. |
The hunter counts to 5 while the rattlesnake quietly moves anywhere in the circle. When the hunter yells, 'Rattlesnake!', the snake freezes and shakes the rattle twice.
When the hunter hears the rattle, the hunter quickly moves to where the snake is hiding and takes a swing at the snake. If the snake is hit with the sock, the hunter scores a point. If the sock misses, the snake scores a point.
The snake moves away while the hunter again counts to 5. The hunter gets 5 turns at killing the snake and then its another pair's turn.
