Knot of the week?
« on: July 11, 2005, 04:09:28 PM »
Ok so after experimenting a bit i had a bright idea (well we'll see). Running alongside trick of the week you could have knot of the week. Someone submits a string figure or knot or something and there is a vid etc then people have to try to find how he (or she) got into it, then at the end of the week there will be a video revealing all...
What do you guys think?

(Hope its not too stupid :wink:)
Diabolo or Diablo

Hey, I LIKE stupid!

This reminds me of a juggling convention game I thought of, but have yet to get arround to organising it at any games session I've hosted. The idea is to get all the diaboloists to give you their handsticks and a diabolo at the beginning of the games session. While other games are going on, somebody tangles each diabolo/handstick/string in exactly the same way.

Then the organisers set out all the tangled sticks, gets everyone to stand in a line... then shout GO! Everyone must run to thair handsticks, untangle the complicated knot... the winner is the first person to make a high throw, signalling that their string is untangled.

Then you get on to the normal diabolo games like high throw, long pass, in the box, longest grind, infinite suicide endurance, two diabolo combat, etc.

This game would be good, as the WORST diaboloist would win.

Luke`s idea sounds fun.

The idea to do a knot of the week is not very kewl, as you can just send your special knots in to the video of the week session.

Touché Luke...
Sorry to cut you down Spooned, but the nice idea is always appreciated.  I think it would have a place at trick of the week (which I'm desperately trying to work on but I'm just not good enough).  I hate knots in string, we used to have a drawer full of string.  Yoyo-ers get some even worse knots especially if you have a fixed axle yoyo.
