Game description

Any number of participants can compete against each other in this funny gladiator game. Before the game can begin, the team leader prepares two large potato sacks and fills them with foam pieces or sponges. Those foam filled sacks will be their weapons, which the gladiators use. Next armed with their sacks the gladiators enter the arena. Ideally, each gladiator standing on a pedestal. The objective is to knock each other off the pedestal by hitting each other with the sack. If you do not have two pedestals available, mark a small area, from which the opponents have to push each other out. At the end, the winner plays against each other until there is only one man standing.


The winner is the player who pushes all the other off the game.
