Hoops I did it again is a combination of a variety of games involving hoops. Here are three of the games that are included when you book a Hoops I Did It Again event:
Rock, Paper, Scissors:
Feeling active? This one has teams standing at opposite sides of the room with only hoops connecting them. The aim is to get one of your team members to the other side. One person from each team will jump into the hoops eventually meeting the other team somewhere along the way. When you meet the other person, you will need to play a round of rock, paper, scissors. Who ever wins that game gets to move on getting closer to the oppositions side. As soon as the game of rock, paper, scissors is complete the team who looses can send another person to jump through the hoops. Make it harder and get all your team to the other side, this way could work well with smaller teams.
There is a time limit on this one. The whole team will line up and one person needs to be nominated as the leader. Using the hoop the leader has to ensure that all team members pass through it. It’s completely up to you and the team on the tactics for completing this one, each team will have a slightly different take on this activity. The quickest team to get all team members through the hoop wins. Only one person at a time is allowed through the hoop.
Helium Hoop is the frustrating one. This will seem possible once explained but it is really hard. Team members will need to place their index fingers underneath the hoop so it balances on everyone’s fingers. The aim is to get the hoop to the floor by slowly moving towards the floor with the hoop. It is difficult as everyone will think they are moving down but some will be lifting up. A funny one as teams will be confused as to what is happening. Will your team be the first to accomplish this challenge? Will the hoop reach the floor with no cheating?
