The games return this year to Gypsy House Party, but we have added a few other things of interest for your daytime enjoyment.
Why Games? Well, we tried to think of things you might do if you were actually hanging out at someone’s house for the weekend. You might be playing various games along with eating, drinking and watching movies/TV came to mind. And since there will be lots of people hanging out at this ‘house’, we wanted to have some friendly competitions to determine who’s the best. The games will be spread out between Saturday and Sunday afternoons. You must be a weekend pass holder to compete in the game tournaments.
So, here are the list of games. The schedule will be announced soon.
Bar Games - This was a big hit last year and will return. A set of simple games designed to test your dexterity. Modeled after the TV show “Minute to Win It”, the games are head to head instead of having to perform the task in 60 seconds. If you would like an idea of the type of games that will be played, visit “Minute to Win It” website. Most of the games will come directly from there. This competition will have all competitors competing at once, with the slowest competitor being eliminated, until only one is left. Limited to 16 competitors.
Twister - You against one or two other dancers in this classic game of contortion. Look for a special surprise in the finals. Up to 18 people can sign up for this tournament where the last person standing is the winner.
Beer Pong - Yes, Beer Pong. Not so much as a drinking
game, that is up to the participants, but more of a competition.
Can you toss a ping pong ball into your opponents 10 cups before they do the same to your cups? Teams of two people compete.
Ping Pong - There will be a good old fashion ping pong
tournament. A nice game with a little more physical activity. Ok, who am I kidding, it’s just a bunch of fun. Limited to 8 competitors.
So, pick a game or two and have a little fun during the daylight hours at Sons of Hermann Hall.
