Speedboat Relay

This is one bucket brigade that, instead of putting out the fire, is guaranteed to fan the flames of hot competition. The object: players try to deliver their watery cargo without spilling the goods.

Soak-O-Meter Rating: Drenched

What you'll need

  • Pool
  • 4 Buckets or similar Water Containers
  • 2 Flotation Devices (for the speedboats), such as rafts, or noodles, or boogieboards
  • At least 2 Plastic Cups
Helpful Tip:

If you have only a few people on each team, you may want to give each player more than one turn.

How to play

  1. Divide everyone into 2 teams. At one end of the pool, set up 2 buckets full of water; at the other end, set up 2 empty buckets. Both teams line up by the buckets containing water.

  2. The first player in line for each team has to fill his cup from the bucket, ferry it across the pool using his team's speedboat, pour the water into the empty bucket, and return. He then passes the speedboat to the next team member, who again fills the cup from the bucket and delivers it, just as the previous player did.

  3. The game ends as soon as one team completes the race. However, it's not all about speed, since it's the team that transports the most water that wins.
