A friend of mine serving in an OTC asked me for some suggestions for mess games. So here I am asking for inspiration to help them out in their mission to liven up training night booze sessions.... Anyway to start things off: The Maggot Race Stores required: Copious amounts of beer Two x Sleeping Bags Various Items of Furniture with balanced items on top Instructions: Arrange furniture into a pseudo assault course in the mess. There must be two identical routes through to negate the chance for cheating. Form two teams of identical size / ability behind each route. On the command Go the first person must down his / her pint and then climb into the sleeping bag ensuring that only their head is protruding. (Sleeping bags must be fully closed to ensure that elbows etc aren't used) After the person is fully inside the fastened sleeping bag, they must complete the course and return by the same route without knocking over the items balanced on the furniture. Penalties (time or booze) should be enforced by the referee for knocking over the furniture / missing obstacles / excessive spillage or knocking over the balanced items. The next person in the team then sinks their pint and attempts the course until the entire team completes the process. The first team to have every member back in line wins.
