Use full 11” or 12” water balloons. Pitch the ball, hit the target
and SPLURSH! Extra fun for fund raisers when
you charge $1to $10 for 3 throws. Sometimes kids will line up
and pay just to sit in the chair to be the one splurshed!
Fill 11” balloons with 1quart (or less) of water, inflate the rest
with air. Same fun action, less water used (good
when it’s chilly out, or you’re indoors with a kiddie pool to catch
the Splursh water).
3. SPLURSH OFF!
Use TWO Pitchburst games facing one another. Each contestant is both
pitcher and Splurshee… each takes turn
pitching while the other sits. First to SPLURSH the other
wins! Get 2 popular VIPs to play for charity and crowd
(Can be played on one game too, but that requires
more running around.)
Use confetti instead of water in balloons (make your own with a
funnel). Great for indoors, or when your VIP good
sport really doesn’t want to get wet! Also adds a great popping
5. SLIME! (OR APPLESAUCE OR PUDDING)—
Kids have seen it on TV, so make it happen for wild and crazy
events. Insert food-colored applesauce or pudding
through a funnel ( fill about ½ full) and inflate the rest with air.
Be prepared to clean up, though.
In a POP your splurshee looks like a powdered donut! Funnel in
simple white flour ( about ½ cup does fine), and
fill the rest with air. Nice variety especially for indoor fun.
7. MYSTERY SPLURSH!—
Unique combo game first used in London: Fill 4 opaque, numbered
balloons: one each with water, flour, pudding,
confetti. Let your Splurshee choose which
number balloon they want to sit under — nobody knows what they’ll
get hit with until the target’s hit. Great crowd excitement builder!
8. FUNNELED FUEL—
This one’s unique for the pub or spring break crowd. Fill balloons
with your favorite beverage ( from tap makes it
easiest). Splurshee sits in chair below the balloon, holding wide
funnel in their mouth. When target’s hit and balloon
bursts, Splurshee gets a funnel full to drink.
9. PIN THE SPLURSH ON THE SPLURSHEE—
tame but fun game for little tikes. With someone ready to be
splurshed (we recommend just a little water as in
#2 above), the “pitcher” is blindfolded and given a Jugglebeanball.
Instead of throwing, they're turned around 3 times
and told to push the ball into the red target.
Finally, a dunking game for fun loving people with disabilities.
Pitchburst can be played in wheelchairs, by both the
pitcher and the splurshee!
