What’s not to love about Twister? It’s a game of endless hilarity (whether you’re a participant or a spectator), it forces people to get to know each other very well (in very odd ways), and it features lots and lots of falling (which is quite often the greatest cheap entertainment in the world). What’s the one thing not to love about Twister? The standard board can really only hold four or so players without verging on clowns-stuffed-into-a-car territory. So it’s time to think outside the game box…
Two words: Mega Twister.
Yes, for your next big bash, we suggest catapulting your Twister game up to the next level. Invest in three additional Twister games—new or used—or just the mats themselves if you can find them. Solidly attach the three new mats to your existing mat to form an enormous Twister square. Find the biggest space you have (think backyard or finished basement), and let the colored-circle madness ensue.
With four mats, you can have upwards of 16 people playing at one time, so make sure that everyone at the party gets a chance to get down and get twisty amongst a mob of your nearest and dearest. And since you have multiple spinners now, you can even have multiple callers, if you have guests who prefer to remain above the fray. Of course, if the cocktails are flowing, then your mega game is likely to get even more mega entertaining.
Now…right hand, yellow!
