Dizzy Bat Gauntlet

This is a game we played at camp this week. I came up with the idea by combining elements from a couple of games. Have your group stand on the outside of 2 lines of parallel cones about 15 feet across. Every person on the outside of the cones is equipped w/ 2 water balloons, these are your “throwers”. Select people to act as “runners”, their job is to run through the “throwers” as fast as possible to the end without being hit by balloons. Here is where the fun comes in, the “runners” must first spin around a baseball bat 10 times before running the gauntlet. It is hillarious as kids stagger, stumble and fall while being pelted by balloons. The object is to be the person or group to get hit the least upon completion. This requires a judge to count the hits taken.
