The bottles are spread out over the game area. None close enough that they will collide if toppled, so try to have 1-2 meters between them.

Create 2 teams. Kept the game time to 1-2 minutes, as it can cause some arguments.

One team has to topple the bottles by hand by laying them down. Hitting them or kicking the bottles is not allowed, and you will be removed from the game.

The other team has raise the bottles up again.

When the time is up you count the number of standing bottles.

If any bottle is moved after the time is up, it gives a penalty of 5 points. When bottles are toppled or raised they should stay where they are, the teams are not allowed to move the bottles.

In the second round the roles are switched.


Use bottles of different sizes, where larger gives more points to make the game more tactical.

If your bottles are filled with water, go on to game 3 to save yourself from work.
