Another diabolical invention.
Here in the midwest, there’s a local custom of playing a beanbag-tossing game known as “Cornhole”. If you ever find yourself in a tailgating situation around here, you’ll see lots of people playing it. In fact, it’s so popular, there’s even a group called the American Cornhole Association that’ll tell you the official rules, and hosts tournaments. They even have a website at playcornhole.org.
So I thought of a game that could be played as a supplement to cornhole. I’m calling it “Kick My Balls”.
The principle is pretty simple:
You use a standard basketball and basketball hoop attached to a plywood backboard. The net is tied at the bottom to hold the ball. The ball starts out cradled in the net. The player kicks the ball through the bottom of the net, and tries to get it to land back in the net. If the player is successful, they are assigned points based on the height the ball reached. If the ball lands outside the net, no points are awarded, and the player has to run after and retrieve the ball.
P.S., since this is the second invention I’ve posted, I’m going to make a new category for them.
