Bucket Ball

Friday, February 22, 2008

Bucket Ball has a similar feel to Hanet Ball in the sense that the player actually stands within the goal but it is much weirder, more fun and... uses buckets. For two competing players.

Hanetball

HanetBall is the game you would get if you crossed a game of basket ball with a trip to your local Mothercare store.

However, there is a catch because players can only use their noses to blow them up. The best technique is to stretch the balloon's neck over both nostrils, breath in through the mouth whilst pinching nose and balloon tight, then exhale hard
