So, today is International Tabletop Day a day when we’re all encouraged to head out into public and play a tabletop game. Obviously this is something very close to our hearts, but we wanted to give a it a little dash of Tiny Games flavour. We could make Tiny Games to be played on tabletops, or we could be smart-asses and make games to play be played with tabletops themselves.
So that’s what we’ve come up with. Here are three Tiny Games for playing with little more than a table, probably some fruit and maybe your legs.
PUMP UP THE VOLUME
A game for one or more precise players.
Firstly, download a volume meter on your smartphone or open one up on your laptop. Next, take a wooden object of your choosing (perhaps a spoon, or a club or some kind) and attempt to strike the table as many times as you can, each strike slightly louder than the last.
A game for two or more sweet-toothed players.
Player one lays under a table.Player two places five treats, each in a bowl, on the table. Player one must now point from below the table at where they think the treats have been placed. Each one they get correct, they get to keep.
A game for two or more leggy players.
Attach a wide bowl to the bottom of a table, so that six inches of it protrudes from the table’s edge. Place an apple on the table. Now players take it in turns to lie under the table and attempt to roll the apple into the bowl using only their legs. Repeat to fade.
