I think this game is really a good representative of all made of sports. We made it up by going into our garage and pulling out the most random stuff we could find, then making a game around it.
We hope you like it!
*Note* Sorry about the bad quality on the video! My regular video camera doesn't work and the one I'm borrowing is really bad. Also, the people in the video are my little brother and his friend.
Step 1: The Materials
2-20 People to Play
(I'm going to give the rest of the materials assuming that you have 2 people)
2 Mini Lacrosse Sticks
4 Cones (For 2 Goals)
1 Big Ball
Pads and Helmets (Don't want to end up stuck in a wheel chair!)
Chalk (To draw the lines of the court)
A Place To Play (A Driveway or a Street)
Step 2: The Object of the Game
You ride on the Ripstiks and use the mini Lacrosse sticks to move the giant tennis ball into your opponent's goal.
Step 3: Setting Up the Court
Now, the rest of these steps don't have to be followed exactly. You can adapt them to fit your area, or not follow them at all.
1. Using the chalk, draw a circle in the middle of the court. This will be the area that the ball is placed for faceoffs.
2. Draw lines 10 feet away from the center of the circle on both sides. These will be the lines that you need to start behind for the faceoff.
3. Draw a box around the goals that you have to be outside of to score a goal. Make them as big or small as you like.
Now your court is ready. Wasn't that easy.
Step 4: Gameplay
1. Game starts with face off.
2. Players fight over the ball and try to move it towards the goals.
3. Someone scores a goal.
4. Once a goal is scored, the ball is placed back in the middle and there is another face off.
5. At the end of the time limit, whoever has the most goals wins.
6. If the game is tied there is a sudden death overtime. First to score after a faceoff wins.
Step 5: Rules and Penalties
1. If the ball goes out of bounds the opposing team is given the ball.
2. If you hit someone...
a. They must be in possession of the ball.
b. You have to hit them with your stick, not your hands.
c. You can only hit them on the Ripstik and on their lacrosse stick.
3. The ball can only be advanced with the lacrosse stick. If you move it with your hands you lose possession.
4. If you fall off of your Ripstik...
a. You have to try to get back on right away.
b. You can't advance the ball or try to hit any opposing players.
c. If you have the ball you lose possession of it.
I think you get the idea. Like always, change rules and modify them to make the game more enjoyable for you.
Step 6: Now You're Ready!
1. It's played with a ball.
2. Not everybody can do it (Running... not a sport)
3. You can use your arms.
4. You don't have to rent shoes.
5. There's a chance for "serious debilitating injury".
Now go out and have fun playing.
Oh, and if you want George Carlin's entire piece... here.
