The straw ralley is a coordination game for a group of players standing in a circle.


  • a small sheet of paper
  • a straw for each player


The first player uses his straw to grab the paper. He sucks at the straw and uses the air pressure to hold the paper. Of course, he may not touch the paper with his hands! He then passes on the paper to his neighboring player in the circle. Is the team able to pass on the paper around the circle without dropping it?
