There are many ways to play Boom Blaster:
2-PERSON BLAST-OFF - As pictured, two people pump away to see who can be first to burst. A real crowd pleaser at special events!
4-PERSON BLAST-OFF - Can be played as 4 people competing to win, OR, 2 teams play until one team bursts BOTH of its balloons. [Can be adapted for any number of games]
TAG TEAM BOOM RELAY - Two (or more) teams line up about 10 feet from the Boom Blaster units. At the start each person runs to the Boom Detonator, pumps handle 5 times, runs back to tag the hand of the next person. This is repeated until the winning team bursts its balloon! (Or, play so that the winning team is the one whose balloon doesn't pop.)
BOOM TIME COMPETITION - With one unit, contestants take turns trying to be the fastest to burst their balloon, based on a stopwatch.
PUT COUPONS IN BALLOONS - Prepare and insert small paper coupons inside the balloons you'll be using with Boom Blaster. Then when a player wins, they get the prize listed on their coupon.
DRESS UP THE GAME - Imagine the balloon is an inflating "head". Dress the Boom Towers to appear like a bodies with arms, legs and clothing. Draw faces on the balloons (or use the game's special balloons with "Betty" and "Buddy" Boom Blaster's faces), and race to see whose "head" pops first.
ONE LEG OF A BIG EVENT --Create special events where contestants need to play a sequence of games faster. For example, race to bust a Boom Blaster balloon, run next to ®Pitchburst and hit the bullseye to soak someone, then run a potato sack race and finish with a frisbee toss through a hoop. Boom Blaster works fine with any comination of games and activities.
