Ach du Kacke!

First place! Only stepped into two poops!


In daily life, dog poops must be removed quickly. In Ach du Kacke!, the dog poops are not removed, but set out on a mat that is meant to represent a meadow.

Eight dog poops are formed with plasticine and the little mold, five are randomly distributed on the mat at the start. All players then remove shoes and socks and are active player in turn. The active player is blindfolded and stands at one end of the mat; another player turns the spinner and names the resulting number of steps and the - eventual - number of poops that needs to be added or removed. Then the active player takes minimum the number of steps determined by the spinner, but always goes to the end of the mat, removes the blindfold and takes note of the number of poops he did step into. Those poops are reshaped and randomly placed again. The number of poops might change only with the turning of the spinner for the next player.

When all players have been active once and walked along the mat, you win, if you stepped into fewest poops.

In a variant the active player is turned around three times, before he starts his walk along the mat. In the solitaire version you turn the spinner and maybe place or remove poops, before you don the blindfold and begin to walk.

Food has always been an interesting topic for games for children, and since Zicke Zacke Hühnerkacke the opposite topic has become acceptable, too. Lately, games like Pipi Party or Scheiß drauf or Monster Pups have triggered a real boom and Ach du Kacke fits seamlessly into that range; it works well, and children think that the poops and running the gamut of them are simple and pure fun and not at all shitty.
