We are having the neighbours round and raising money for Macmillan Cancer care and wanted a few simple games that we could charge a few pence for people to play. We have a treasure island to guess where the loot is hidden and we have a simple game involving a plant pot and some marbles. Tug of war etc is out since the average age is about 70! Any ideas?

Flour game

Fill a pyrex bowl with flour; pack it down and put a plate on top. Stick in freezer for an hour or so. Turn the flour out onto a plate - it should keepits shape. Then put an unwrapped choc on the top. People take in turns to slice a section from the flour onto the plate without dislodging choc. When someone does cause the whole thing to collapse they have to get the choc out of the flour with their teeth.
