Description Long

A group of five-to-ten people sits around a table. In the middle of the table, there is a bar of packaged chocolate (additionally wrapped up, like a gift), a scarf, a pair of sunglasses/ski goggles, a pair of gloves, a hat and a dice.

 

One member of the group rolls the dice and passes it on. The first person to roll a six puts on all the gear and starts to unwrap the chocolate with the cutlery. Meanwhile, the rest of the group continues to roll the dice. The next person to roll a six puts on the winter gear and continues with the unwrapping process. The goal is to eat as much chocolate as possible.

Preparation

Buy the chocolate and wrap it.

 

Provide the scarf, sunglasses/ski goggles, gloves, hat and dice.

Execution

All of the participants are seated around a table. Explain the game. The first person rolls the dice and passes it on immediately. The first person to roll a six puts on all the gear and starts to unwrap the chocolate. The game is over once the chocolate has been eaten entirely. There is no winner. Alternatively, the person who ate most of the chocolate could be named the winner.

 

The game serves to break the ice and provide a little fun.

Hints from experience

Dark chocolate is harder and therefore better suited for the game than milk chocolate.

 

Provide only a knife and fork, or alternatively, replace the fork with a spoon, to increase the level of difficulty.

 

People of all ages enjoy the game.

 

The dress-up items can be chosen individually, which enables you to adapt the level of difficulty.
