Jungle Games - what would you do?

Jungle Games - what would you do?

On yesterdays show we saw, in between Natalies whines and cries of "I'm going to be sick", "I can't do it" and "ooh I feel faint", Jungle Joe make a draughts set.

Very ingenious I thought. He apparently got the idea from his boy scout days. He made a checkerboard out of an old bit of cloth and stones for the pieces. The white colours were made using toothpaste and the black with some water and charcoal.

Even Vic was trying to while away the hours with some sort of catching game. What was it called? Blueberry scoop or something?

Boredom seems to one of the main hurdles that contestants in all reality tv shows have to overcome.

Anyway, my question to you is....what would you do to prevent boredom? What games could you come up with using just jungle materials? Keep it clean folks! :glare: Smile

I thought Joe's draughts game was inspired.

You could also make a scrabble set of sorts, by using small white pebbles from the river and scratching charcoal letters on them (or using toothpaste to do the letters).

Im sure a game of cricket could be organised using a ball of rolled up socks and a bat made from the logs. Or even tennis - they were weaving palm leaves earlier in the week, maybe they could use them as bats?

Id certainly (like Joe) HAVE to try and make a game up of some sort - because the boredom, rather than the trials or challenges would make me go doolally tap, more than anything ...

Mancala? What's that?

How about a good old game of pooh sticks?

They could gamble (they all have enough money) on the fastest spider/grub/insect. Insect races. Smile

I would play "Who Am I?" - like we are in the Games forum.

Except of course that most of them are so un-famous that if they picked themselves everyone else would say, "That was too obscure!" :laugh:

With regard to Joe's boy scout days and harking back to my Girl Guide days - I would probably make things.

I once made a fabulous and ever so stylish washing up bowl stand with a draining board out of twigs and string.
