Abstract

This covers a game kit, system, method, and device for the balloon games. A game kit (Fig. 1 ) for the Balloon Stomper/ popping/ hitting/ kicking/ bursting game. The kit consists of a balloon (101 ), a tether for the balloon (103), and a device for attaching the balloon to a player (105), as an example. As one example, the game involves tying a balloon to the ankle of each player. Then the players try to stomp on each other's balloons (101 ), while protecting their own balloon. The winner is the last person or team with a balloon that has not been popped. There are many other variations for the game/rules as explained here in more details. One problem with the game is that preparing a large number of game set-ups is time consuming and labor intensive. This is intended to make both set-up and clean-up of the balloon stomper game simpler. It also deals with the balloon weight setup and system.
