Gladiator Sumo Wrestling Game

Materials:
6 inner-tubes, rope, duct tape, 2 football helmets, (chalk)

Directions:
You may have done this one at camp. Get six large inner-tubes, and tape three together in a stack so a person can fit inside. Take a piece of rope about 32 inches long and cut it into four pieces - tie them into circles, and then tape two at the bottom of each stack of inner-tubes so they can be used as handles. Borrow two football helmets. Then create a ring on the floor with string, tape, chalk, whatever.

Have both contestants wear a helmet, step into their inner-tubes (holding the handles on the bottom tube) and they try to push each other out of the ring. The first person to go outside the ring with both feet or to fall down loses.

This is obviously a very aggressive game, but it does blow away kids' stereotypes. You may use sumo type music, salt over the shoulder, the whole bit for the sell. Outside is best.
