Game description

This game is best suited for some leisurely outdoor fun. Should you really attempt to play this game indoors, you will need to make sure, that you cover walls and floors. – Best just play it outdoors. Without any doubt, with this game, it is getting wet all around. At the beginning of the game, each participant receives a sponge. Throughout the field, there are several buckets of water prepared. To make it even funnier, you can add some none toxic paint to some of the buckets. The objective is to through the sponges at each other which are first submerged in the water or paint.


One variation would be the divide the entire group in two team and also prepare two sets of buckets. One with blue, the other one with red colour. The winner is the team which could throw the most colour around.


If played with colour, the team whose colour predominates wins.
