Heres how it works: You need to set up two territories with a no mans land. and divided your group into 2 teams. You also need 2 small garbage cans (1 per team), 50 pieces of crumpled paper (25 per team) and 4 "Jail break cards" (2 per team). The goal is to sneak your trash into your enemies garbage can, so that your can has the least. Rules: 1. some one from each team must stay at a jail (the team will decide) at all times. They may only guard prisoners and if anyone passes them a "jail break card then all in the jail are free. 2. KEY RULE - AT ANY TIME ANY PERSON (accept jailer) MAY BE STOPPED (by 2 hand touch) AND MUST GIVE UP ANYTHING (GARBAGE OR JAIL BREAK CARDS) THAT THEY HAVE... IF THEY HAVE SOMETHING THE STUFF IS TAKEN AND USED BY THE OTHER TEAM AND THAT PERSON IS PLACED IN JAIL... IF THEY ARE STOPED AND HAVE NOTHING... THE PERSON BEING SEARCHED MAY TAKE THE SEARCHER TO JAIL. therfore be sure they have something before you stop someone or you might be put in jail. Everything taken by a search belongs to the other team (more garbage to sneak and jail braeak cards) 3. no garbage may be taken from the cans once it is droped in... no one may guard the can... the winner is the team that has the least amount of garbage when all 50 pieces of garbage are in the cans. This is a fun game that can go any way each time... i have seen teams go out trying to smuggle nothing and litterally put the other team all in jail before the even attempted to smuggle garbage, while others have sent all the garbage with 1 person, who made it through to give thier team 25 , so that all they need was one more to win. Some make it thier goal to get all 4 jail break cards so that the other team can't get out of jail any more.... you don't have to run, everyone can take part and it's an interesting game every time we play it!
