With the holiday season approaching I would like to share with you some indoor games that you can do with your family and friends using foam swords. I know by experience that having games at a holiday party is always a win-win situation and helps for people to have fun together.
Arms & Legs Dual Game
One game that is fun, safe and easy to do is of course to have a “dual”. The game rule is to hit your opponent either on the arms or the legs. Once a leg or arm has been used it cannot be used again. As an example, if you touch my left legs I have go down on my left knee to the floor. Of course hitting the face or the body is not allowed and if one opponent does that he loses the game. The games end when the first person successfully touch the 2 legs and 2 arms of his opponent.
Another game is the “castle game” where one opponent protects the castle while the other tries to touch it with a foam sword. Find something to use as a castle such a carton box, balloon or other none breakable object. The object need to stand up and easily fall down or move if you touch it with the sword. The best is a balloon. The rule is one opponent plays as the defender and the other as the attacker. The defender has the object between his legs and tries to protect it from the attacker. The defender tries to touch the attacker without leaving the castle. The game finishes when either the attacker touches the castle or the defender touch the attacker 5 times.
Another recommendation is when you do this indoor games it better to use small sword such as a dagger. As an example, using a Brennus or Bratel la Grande dagger are perfect for that. You can also use other swords but you know Calimacil is the best for that .
There are a lot of other games you can play at a party. With a bit of imagination I’m sure you have can find other fun games as well.
