This game is an adaptation from a Japanese gameshow called “Human Tetris”(which then became famous in some countries under the name “Hole in the Wall”). Watch the below video to get an idea of how the game works.
This game is super funny to watch and is great for those nights when you want loads of laughs!
The basic idea is you set up a makeshift runway and build your own hole in the wall shapes using sheets of cardboard. You can buy large sheets of cardboard fairly cheap from cardboard factories. When picking the size of cardboard sheets we recomend 2mx2m or bigger (The size of the cardboard below is 2.2m x 2.2m) Don’t worry about thickness too much, buy what ever is cheapest (the cardboard pictured below was 6mm thick).
Here is some hacks on how to achieve this game (ythmin style)
1. Build a frame out of timber with which you can clamp giant cardboard panels to using quick grip clamps from a hardware store. Using clamps means you can quickly change the cardboard panels over in between each round with new panels and new shapes.
On the public side of this sectioned off area build a padded platform for the contestants to stand on. This could be built using a high-jump mattress or anything padded.
The key tip in building your padded platform is to make sure that it is narrower and lower than your rolling frame so that it can roll straight over your padded platform.
This Game could go down in history in your youth ministry if done well!
