Fun in the dark

Get girls working together to beat 'the guardian'.


This game is played in the dark.

  1. Choose someone to be the guardian. She sits on the chair, which has treasure underneath.
  2. The other girls are the sneakers, who creep towards the treasure. If the guardian thinks she hears somebody she shines the torch in that direction and then has to guess who it is.
  3. If she guesses correctly, that sneaker must go back to the start.

The aim of the game is to rescue the treasure and beat the guardian. The girls need to work together to confuse the guardian by creating distractions.
