This tug-o-war game is a three-way competition of strength.

Number of participants: 3+
For: For kids and adults of all ages.
Intensity level: High
Preparations: tie the rope in a big loop with a knot that will not easily come undone
Equipment: a long length of strong rope, three flags (or towels will do)

Divide the group into three equally matched teams. The teams stand inside the loop of rope and stretch it to form a triangle. Place a flag 20 feet (six meters) in front of each team. When the host shouts “Go!” each team pulls toward their flag and tries to pull the other two teams away from theirs. The first team to reach and grab their flag wins.

NOTE: This game can also be played as an individual competition of elimination, pitting players against one another in groups of three.
