This game is such a blast! It is great to play with large groups.
All you do is tie the crackers present style with yarn or string. Do this part before the party. Leave a few feet of string so you can tie it around the participants waist.
Then you tie the string around the waist and dangle the cracker to about the middle of the hamstrings of the person playing. Then give all participants a roll of newspaper and some boundaries that they have to stay inside of to play the game. The object of the game is to hit all the crackers off the other players strings and to be the last one left inside the playing area with a cracker. If yours gets knocked off you are out of the game! Its wild and ferocious and lots of fun!
