Immediate Preparation. (5-7 minutes). First draw two lines at both ends of the playground. Next write 'forest' behind one, 'village' behind the other and 'field' between them. After that, put the players in a line ‘on the village edge’.

How to Play. First Player A calls out, e.g.: 'I'm going to the forest to hunt a bear!' and takes one step forward. Next Player B calls out, e.g.: 'I'm going to the forest to hunt a fox!' and so on. If a player can not make a sentence or repeats an animal name, he/she stands still, but does not leave the game! When all the players have taken their turns, the last in the line starts the second round, which goes in the other direction to balance chances of the participants. The winner of the game is the first player to get the ‘forest’.
