These days, the way we party, celebrate, and play with friends is very different. This can lead to a renewed appreciation for party classics you might not have thought of in a while. It's a fun and easy way to get everyone on their feet. Limbo is the perfect game to play at any party! Limbo is not only a fun and exciting game, it also helps people of all ages build coordination, motor skills, and balance. Here's how you play Limbo, no matter if you're hosting a family party or celebrating your birthday.
Players: Three or more
Equipment: Music and a long stick
Here are some new twists on classic Limbo if you don't find regular Limbo exciting enough.
It's Limbo, but you must freeze every time the music stops! And not just your feet or hand or arm - EVERYTHING!
Trivia games are a great way to get everyone thinking and learning new things. Before each player takes their turn at limbo, have them answer a trivia question. The stick will not be lowered if they answer correctly. It will not lower if they do it wrong.
This can be fun for younger players or as a challenge! It's a challenge, but it's easy enough for younger players to beat too!
Nobody likes to go backwards, but it's even more difficult to do so when you're doing limbo. There are only two ways to do the limbo-forward or backwards!
Slide some glow sticks onto the Limbo Stick and lower the lights to create a glow-in-the-dark game. You can add black lights to the glow or wear glow-in-the-dark accessories for extra fun.
Limbo Sprinklers such as this one give the game a summer twist and make it harder to see where you are going.
Roller Limbo, a challenging and fun modification of roller skating, is for you if you are familiar with the sport. Advanced skaters have two options: you can bend backwards and slide under the stick or you can crouch down to make it as small as possible so you can roll through. Everyone should wear helmets, knee pads, and elbow pads.
