- spare balloons!
- prizes

PLAYERS: 2 teams of 4 or more.

AGES: 8 upwards

A classic. It works for so many parties, from kids to adults, from Christmas to Thanksgiving. You'll never go wrong with this game. This game is a lot harder than it sounds, especially if you mix tall and short people.


Blow up two long sausage balloons, and divide your party into two teams.
If you have a lot of people use more teams, minimum 4 per team.

Line the teams up in neat rows.
Give a balloon to the leader of each row, who must place it between his or her knees, pointing forwards.


On the word go, the teams must pass the balloon down their row, from person to person, between their knees, as quickly as possible.
The balloon may not be dropped, or popped and you may not use hands.
If the balloon is dropped it must be picked up between the knees.
A burst balloon is replaced by a new one at the front of the row.

Prizes for the winning team!


The losing team can take a forfeit.
You can make it best of three rounds.
