The game we chose is called "CASINO".
1 big die (1 to 6)
T-shirts, belts or bibs to recognize the 2 - 4 children who catch the other ones
Place to play : every where the children can run (gym, outside etc...). You can mark a zone (with 2 benches or with chalks on the floor) for the Casino.
- Choose 2 - 4 children as police (catchers): they wear T-shirts so that the other children can recognize them
- Choose 1 Mister or Misses Casino, then roll the die. The number shown will be the "luck-number". Mr or Mrs. Casino takes the die and goes to the Casino.
- The other children are the gangsters. They run every where and visit places among the world. The 2 - 4 catchers try to catch them. Once they're caught, they have to go to the casino and line up sitting on the bench. In order to get out, they roll the die, given to them by Mr. or Mrs Casino in turns and try to get the "lucky-number". For example if the "lucky-number" is a "4", the child who rolled the 4, is allowed to leave the casino and take with him three more children (1+3=4!)
- If all the gangsters are sitting in the casino, the game is over. It can be quite a while, depending on the number of policemen. If it takes too long, it can be stopped by the teacher.
