Ultra Tug of War   Ultra Tug of War Game   Scout Game

This Game is meant for Boy Scouts.
4 30-foot heavy-duty ropes
Attach one end of each rope to all the others to create a star shape of ropes.
Lay out the ropes in the play area with the knot in the center.
Mark a circular goal line about 20 feet from the center point.
Disect the circle into quarters by drawing a line from the center to the edge.
Stress the potential danger of rope burns, especially if eliminated teams do not immediately get out of the way.
Create 4 teams - keep patrols intact and combine patrols to even the teams as much as possible. But, it is not necessary to have even teams.

Each team has the goal of pulling all the other teams over their goal line.
When the end of a team's rope crosses into the circle, that team is defeated and drops their rope and quickly leaves the play area.
Teams can swivel and pull to the side to help a neighboring team defeat a superior team and then reverse direction.

Do a 'Best of Five' competition with breaks and strategizing between rounds.
You might want to allow all teams to mingle and talk for a few minutes between rounds in case any 'alliances' want to be proposed.
