Fan Ball

Quite easily the most exciting game you will ever play in your life.

So basically I've only played a few times due to difficulty in finding a Fan Ball arena.

How you play the game:

First of all, you need a room at least 10x10. It must be entirely empty, and have a ceiling fan.

You take one glow in the dark bouncy ball, and charge it up real good on any light source.

Close the door in the empty room, make sure the fan is on it's highest setting. BY ALL MEANS SIT DOWN. Turn off the light, and chuck your fan-ball up at the fan.

The only way I can describe the sight of this, is, think of the movie "Tron" on crack.

Finally, make up any rules corresponding to the games limitations and have fun.

       Thanks, been a fan of this website for years. I'm not really sure why I never signed up.   

       Anyways, try out the game if you ever have a chance, how I long to see fan ball played again, one day.

       Welcome, [Jerk].   

       I'd say the odds were against the ball hitting the fan more than once per throw.

       And put some strobing LEDs on the fan blades [+].

       //one glow in the dark bouncy ball// Is this like a superball? They have big ones of those with LEDs, but you could die in there with one of those.   

       I actually just set up a playroom for my daughter with a ceiling fan and one of the first things that I did was hit it with a beach ball. The fan has a light, so I wouldn't try a superball.   

       But hey, it's crazy, pretty funny and might get you killed so (+) welcome to the halfbakery.

       I had a terrible billiards accident some years ago, and today it is very hot here. This was an idea I thought could help me.

       wot's a glow in the dark bouncy ball?

       10x10 what? This could get very cosy (and thus more dangerous).   

       I want large teams, multiple balls, moving obstructions and a speed bonus round. Although we may need some sort of irridescent team clothing for this to work.

       Perhaps sequins or reflective tape, [silverstormer]? And rollerblades, with sparklers.
