They sit down in order of strength: stronger, the second on his lap and so on until the smallest is in front

The onion boot helps who by, Getting super behind and grabbing her by the waist. This is how they start until they manage to make the last one continue (sometimes to start them is to make three or four onions follow at once). It is a traditional Catalan game from the 19th century
