Read this important safety note!
The FlingSock can be used for most traditional
beanbag activities and games such as balancing it on different body parts,
relay races, hot potato, floor markers etc. Roll the tail around the beanbag
for simple short range underhand tossing.
Games such as Drop Zone and FlingSock Jarts can
be scaled down to size for indoor dimensions tossing the rolled up FlingSocks
like traditional beanbags.
Each player places the handle of the FlingSock
under an armpit so the beanbag is hanging at the side. Within defined boundaries,
the object is to snatch other players FlingSocks without losing your own.
Play as teams, (perhaps by color of FlingSock)
or individually. Many different strategies will evolve. gotm498
Tiger Tail Tag
Each player balances a FlingSock on his head with
the tail hanging down. Within defined boundaries, the object is to snatch
other players FlingSocks without losing your own or letting your fall off.
This game is similar to armpit tag but requires more balance and finesse
Changing the size of the boundaries will alter
the nature of the game.
Snatch the Jewels
Scatter FlingSocks (jewels) around on the floor
in an area about 20 feet across. Choose 1 or 2 people to guard the kings jewels. When the moderator starts
the game, the remaining players try to snatch jewels. Anyone tagged by a
guard is out and sent to the dungeon. A thief tagged while carrying jewels
must drop the jewels where tagged.
Jewels scattered close together makes it easier
for the guards. Further apart helps the thieves. Guards can be aided by
foam swords if you have them. Foam swimming noodles work pretty well as
swords and theyre cheap. Remind the guards that the swords are magic and
only need to lightly touch someone to stop them. In other words, dont clobber
people with the swords.
Single Swing Fling
Two players face each other about 10-15 yards apart.
Each player must catch the FlingSock by the tail and throw it back in a
single fluid motion.
With a little practice you can make lightning fast
passes. For competition, see how many times you can pass it back and forth
in 30 seconds or a minute.
A nice, calm game. Play it just like lawn jarts.
Targets can be large and further apart than regular jarts. Each player gets
2-3 FlingSocks of the same color. You can play with 2 players and walk back
and forth or with 4 players with a pair staying at each end.
Play just like disc golf but beware of trees. Best
played in open fields unless you like to climb trees.
Behind the back and between the legs throws are
pretty easy with just a little practice. Trick catches take a little more
A one-person pastime. Swing the FlingSock between
your legs and catch it with the opposite hand. Keep it spinning and passing
back and forth between your hands and between your legs. Bruce Lee vocals
are optional but helpful.
The object is for everyone to have fun. The moderator is the all-powerful
dictator. You may at any time change the rules or boundaries or handicap
players to help balance out the wide spectrum of abilities. We want the
tentative athlete and superjock to play together at the best of their abilities.
