Looking for a fun game to play this summer? Well my friend Travis and I might have one for you!
We made up a game called, Titanic Dodgeball and it was SO MUCH FUN! It is perfect for any outdoor summer event!
Here is what you need:
-1 Inflatable pool (we used one that was 12 ft. wide)
-3 Yoga Balls
-1 Long Rope (we used a 40 ft. rope)
*Event Hack: If you don’t have a pump to fill your pool/yoga balls/etc., use a tire pump from your local gas station
Here is how you play:
-Fill up your pool only about a foot or so and surround it by a rope (about 15 ft. from the pool).
- Create as many teams of 3 or 4 as you can. Have each of them come up with their team name (each team is a “ship” so we had all of their names start with “s.s.”).
-The game takes place in a series of 30 second “rounds.” In a round, one team gets into the pool and all of the other teams surround them behind the rope perimeter and try their best to throw the yoga balls (icebergs) and the team in the pool (the ship) and try to sink it (eliminate every player).
-A team can earn points in two ways: 1) If they hit one of the team members in the pool. 2) The team in the pool gets one point for every team member left after the 30 second timer runs out.
-If a member of the team in the pool gets hit, they must leave the pool and watch the destruction of their ship. However, if one of their team members catches a ball, they are allowed to return to the pool and rejoin their team.
-If someone in the pool catches a ball thrown at them, the person that threw it has to sit down and can not participate for the rest of the round.
-At the end of the round, write down the number of points earned by each team
-The game ends when every team has had a round in the pool.
-The winner will be the team with the most amount of points earned throughout the game!
Does your youth group have a classic game that they love? Please share it! We several park days on our calendar that could use some creative games!
