New Human Bowling

Firstly, I have done a check for this already and this idea is different to the one in existance.

Invented by my brother and some friends with too much time and a school.

Note: This game requires helmets or a very soft floor to be safe

Anyway, the essence of the game is thus: You play normal bowling (same formation of pins) but of a huge scale.

The pins are people standing in those bins you find in schools or on streets, which are quite light and with the lid off and bag out go up to waist height. 10 people stand in these in a pyramid formation.

The balls are other people sitting on swivel chairs with wheels whom the remaining people propel at the pins whilst spinning around, often 2 at a time.

This game can be done with a structured 1 turn each two players and counting the scores or just until someone gets bored/seriously injured.

Trust me, fun for hours!

Takeshi's castle - The first half of this or so http://homepage.ntl...kempthorne/Takeshi/
Click Main Games, Images and look under "Skittles" [hidden truths, Jun 15 2005]

Zorbing http://images.googl...afe=off&sa=N&tab=wi
Looks like quite the barrel of laughs [hidden truths, Jun 18 2005]

       The first half of this idea, the bit about the pins is already half-baked (worryingly) in the japanese TV show Takeshi's castle. No dirty unsanitary bins either.

       Did you break anything?

       Not yet but we're just waiting...

       By the way [Hidden], i've never seen Takeshi's Castle but that is quite a worrying link.
Germanicus, Jun 16 2005
  

       No zorbing, then?

       Fraid not, but the sight of someone on a swivel chair flying down the street/corridor/hill is priceless and well worth it.

       I think some channels make you pay extra for the sport that involves humans getting rammed with human balls. Would the sport also show the extraction of these balls on TV as well? I feel that this would also appeal to yet another demographic.

       Sounds like something that my friends and I would do. Another cheap amusing game is throwing sticky heart decorations at the wall or at each other. We have spent many sad Friday nights doing that.

       It sounds like something they'd do on Jackass.

       What you really need is a giant, man-sized hamster ball - it might only work going down a hill though. And i think sealing people inside the bins would be a heck of a lot funner - dont see the ball coming (and dont get thrown out of the bin)

       The idea of the hamster-ball was what st3f was talking about earlier. See link.

       Nice, I guess the game could be played with zorbing instead of swivel chairs but then again, when's the last time you saw plenty of zorbs lying around in a public school? Half the point of the game is that it can be played anywhere and everywhere.

       Now that's no way to treat the homeless, is it? (Honestly I have no idea whether you're referring to people, cardboard cutouts, or balloons...)

       I read this as bowling new humans - thank god their bones are still soft.

       //humans getting rammed with human balls// [sartep], that annotation was wicked funny--I almost spit.

       Takeshi's Castle is aired in America, under a different title, "most extreme challenge" or something like that.

       MXC on Spike TV, redubbed with an hysterically funny sports commentary. My favorite show--no, the only show I'll watch.

       Very sorry for deleting that link but it honestly disturbed me.
