The water bomb game

A great, simple game — as long as no one minds getting soaked!

1) Fill your balloons

Fill a number of water balloons.


2) Arrange your players

Get all players to stand in a circle looking inwards at each other.


3) Start throwing

One person throws a water bomb across the circle to someone else.


4) Expand the circle

If they catch it, without it exploding, all players take a small step backwards, widening the circle and the distance between players.


5) Keep on throwing

That player then throws the water bomb to someone else.


6) Expand again

If they catch it without it exploding, the whole group take another step back.


7) Repeat until the water bomb explodes

Repeat the steps above until the water bomb either explodes or the catcher misses.


8) Start again

The game starts all over again in a small circle with a new water bomb.
