Live action Wack-a-Mole! Use this scoreboard to make a full size crazy interactive stage game.
Two teams, made up of a runner and a wacker, race to see who can get the most points before time runs out.
You will need to make some props for this one. The "game board" (we painted a large canvas drop cloth, you could simplify this by using Hula Hoops), the helmets, balloons, and poppers (we used pool noodles). Now clear some space, and get some helpers, this is about to get crazy!
"Alright, We are about to play a live action Wack-a-mole game! Who wants to play "Holey-Wack-A-Moley"!!!
We will need 4 people to help with this game (these 4 will help hold up the "game board"). Now we will need brave 2 people (who are willing to get wacked). And they will need to bring someone they trust with them (they will be the wackers).
The game is simple. You will have 60 sec to get as many points as possible. You will get points by running into the "Holey-Wack-A-Moley" game board and getting a ballon wacked when you pop out of one the 4 holes. Each hole will have a different point value. The crowd will help guide you to the highest scoring hole. This half of the room you are cheering for player 1. This half is cheering for player 2.
Alright player 1. You stand here. Be sure to hold on tight to that balloon as you run. Wacker, you stand behind the game board and be ready to ...well... WACK!
Crowd, are you ready? ... 60 seconds on the clock.. and GO!"
Be sure to rehearse this one. Lots of moving parts, the better prepared you are the more fun the crowd will have.
Blowing up and storing balloons can be a lot of work. Hand the balloons out to the front row, have them each blow it up and pass them down the row as the runner needs them ;)
