Apple necking

You will need:

  • At least 7 people
  • At least 2 Bramley apples
  • Split up into two equal teams (of at least 3 in each group). The members of each team should line up next to each other. One person (not in a team) will need to act as referee (to check no-one cheats!), and to start and finish the game.

In this race team members cannot touch the apple. Before the race the referee places an apple under the chin of the first person in the line of each team. The first person in the line must pass the apple to the person next to them but they can’t touch the apple. The apple must travel between each person using only the necks of the people passing the apples. If you drop the apple while playing, you have to start again! The referee will choose how many times the apple needs to travel up and down the line before the game is over.
