Get a hoberman sphere made of out different colours, choose a colour, throw the hoberman sphere into the air and if it lands on your colour you get a point. If it lands on lots of colours you have a triple-showdown and have to eeny-meeny-miny-mo the colour. But if it doesn't land on your colour you
lose a point which means that at the end you do something called ranking. Every point you lose you have to put part of your body into the hoberman sphere and shut it. If you get all of your parts of your body it's called a blackout. If you get more than five points you win.
Because I didn't know that's what they were called. [Zimmy, May 11 2009]

You should see if your dad will fit, and don't forget to take a picture.
||My dad doesn't actually fit in :(
||Well done. I didn't know what a Hoberman sphere was until I saw the picture, but now I am perfectly clear. The bit about not fitting in sounds like a problem, but it looks like you have a long wait before that affects you, crash.
