Obstacle Course

 

There is sometimes a great difference between doing something as well as possible and doing something as quickly as possible.

Traditional obstacle courses are generally completed as quickly as possible, with teams or individual contestants competing to complete the course faster than their competitors.  Generally speaking, there are no prizes for completing the course most gracefully, most efficiently, most imaginatively, or most skilfully.

It seemed an easy enough game at the beginning.  However, somewhat to the emerging surprise of the players, the game developed over five stages.
