OVERVIEW OF OH, THE PLACES YOU’LL GO
Oh, The Places You’ll Go is a perfect game for those players that want to travel, but their pockets definitely do not want them to. Players will throw ping pong balls at numerous buckets, each labeled with a continent. The first player to visit all seven, wins the game! Who will go the most places?
To setup for the game, using the tape and markers, each of the buckets should be labeled with one of the seven continents around the world. Once they are, they should be oriented in a way so that all of the labels can be read when the players are standing at least 5 feet away.
Each of the players should receive seven ping pong balls, with each player have ping pong balls that are different colors, allowing you to be able to keep up with whose balls are where. If the players do not have enough colored balls, the players may mark on seven of them with a colored marker in order to differentiate them. The game is then ready to begin.
During the game, the players will throw ping pong balls simultaneously, attempting to get at least one of their balls into each of the buckets. If the players run out of balls, they may rush to collect them.
The game will end whenever a player gets one of their balls into each of the buckets.
END OF GAME
The game comes to an end whenever a player gets one of their ping pong balls in each of the seven buckets found in the playing area. This player is determined to be the winner.
