The two groups of ten players have each been given two simple invitations.  First of all, they are invited to travel across the room as a group with (at most) fourteen feet touching the floor at any one time.  Then, after a pause, they are invited to travel back carrying a very long (but relatively light) cardboard tube and to do so without using their hands as they pick up, carry, or put down the tube.
