What is a Beetle Drive?
A Beetle Drive
is a mass game of Beetle and is played with pencil, paper and dice. It´s a fun game for all ages from 5 to 105. Players have one dice for every group of 4, but all play as individuals. They must roll certain numbers to be able to draw all the parts of a Beetle.
The first person in the hall to complete a Beetle, shouts “Beetle” and wins a prize. Each body part has numbered values and they must be drawn in a specific order to completing the Beetle. It is not as easy as it seems and more fun than it may sound.
Winners at each table plus one other then move to a different table and another round begins. Before and after the drive there is food, music and entertainment. And plenty of time to visit sponsors´s stands, NGOs and exhibitions. Guinness World Record Events generate excitement and interest from the public and the media. This is an official event and can use the Guinness World Records logo and merchandise.
