Ever wondered what it would be like to be in a life-size foosball match?
Giant board games and creative play are trending all over the world and making spaces exciting again for all ages.
Spaced Out in Perth is all over this, from cardboard cities to giant cubby houses and the newest fun – Human Foosball!
12 players take their places on the field, holding onto a pipe piece that slides along a wooden frame. The rules, like Foosball confine each player to their frame making it a fun challenge!
Spaced Out is using Human Foosball as a way of creating a fun, relaxed and sociable environment where people want to engage and interact.
Brisbane is also on the Giant board games bandwagon, building Giant Chinese Checkers and Scrabbles sets to attract passers-by to watch and get involved.
Spokane Sidewalk Games in Washington also initiates community building with four weekly games events each week!
