Mars Bar Game

Thanks to Sandra Doyle for posting this game to the Guide Mailing List!

Equipment: Mars Bars (three or four), knife, two dice (more may be needed if the group is particularly large), old clothes (jumper, trousers, hat). For younger girls use Fun-size Mars Bars or the smaller sweets version instead of the large bar and the knife
Number of Players: any number
Age: any age

To Play: Girls sit in a circle. Place one bar, the knife and the old clothes on a chair / table in the centre of the circle. Give the dice to 2 girls sitting facing each other in the circle. Each girl throws the dice and passes it on in a clockwise direction. If a girl gets a 6 then she jumps up, runs clockwise around the outside of the circle, through her space into the centre of the circle where she puts on the clothes and then cuts a slice of the bar. However there may be someone after her and if she is tipped by another girl before she cuts the bar she must take off the clothes as quickly as possible to allow the other girl put them on. If she cuts the bar she is allowed to eat it. Only an untipped (?) girl may eat the bar. Continue until there are no more bars.
