Pitchburst Ideas and "Fillings"
1. CLASSIC - Use full 11" or 12" water balloons.
Pitch the ball, hit the target and SPLURSH! Extra fun for fund
raisers when you charge $1 to $5 for 3 throws. Sometimes kids
will line up and pay just to sit in the chair to be the one splurshed!
2. LITE - Fill 11" balloons with 1 quart
(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
will cheer! (Can be played on one game too, but that requires
more running around.)
4. CONFETTI - Use confetti instead of water
in balloons (make your own with a funnel, or buy hand-filled confetti
balloons from us). Great for indoors, or when your VIP good sport
really doesn't want to get wet! Also adds a great popping sound!
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 1/2 full) and inflate the rest with air. Be prepared to
clean up, though.
6. FLOUR - In a POP! your splurshee looks
like a powdered donut! Funnel in simple white flour (about 1/2
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.
(Caution: see special note below.)
9. PIN THE SPLURSH ON THE SPLURSHEE - A 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
10 . WHEELCHAIR - Finally, a dunking game
for fun loving people with disabilities. Pitchburst can be played
in wheelchairs, by both the pitcher and the splurshee!
