Youth Icebreakers: Rudolph Dodgeball Powered By Docstoc

    A Christmas version of
     a common tag game
       called Catch the
         Dragon's Tail

  A red ball (Rudolph’s nose)
  that is easily thrown, but
  made out of a soft material
  similar to a nerf ball or other
  material that would not hurt a
  person who was hit by it.

  Game Preparation
  1. Divide the group into equal
     teams made up of five or
     more youth
  2. Choose one team to go
     first by being “Santa and
     his Reindeer”.
  3. Reindeer form a line by
     holding the waists or the
     shoulders of the person in
     front of them. They may
     not let go. This will leave
     only the front person with
     his hands free. This person
     is designated Rudolph.

  4. Only Rudolph is able to
     block the red ball
     (Rudolph’s nose).
     The person at the other
     end of the reindeer team is
  5. All other teams join
     together to form a large
     circle around Santa. Leave
     room for Santa and his
     reindeer to move about
     inside the circle.

    Game Play
    1. The idea is for the
       people in the circle to try
       to hit Santa with
       Rudolph’s nose.
    2. Once hit, that person
       leaves the sleigh team
       and sits out until either
       time is up or everyone
       has been eliminated
       from the sleigh.

  3. When Santa is eliminated,
     the next person in line
     becomes Santa. Only
     Santa can be eliminated
     when hit.
  4. The strategy for the
     reindeer is to hide or
     protect Santa by moving
     around and having the
     lead person try to block
     throws so Santa doesn’t
     get hit.

  5. Set a time limit (2
     minutes?) and count the
     number of Reindeer left
     in the sleigh team at the
     end of the time.
  6. Let each team take a turn
     at being Santa and his
     Reindeer. The winner is
     the team who had the
     most reindeer attached to
     the sleigh.
