Don’t Drop the Shock Ball

You’ve mastered playing catch with your parents (or your children). You’ve played hot potato, four square, and dodgeball and become the neighborhood master. Your friends have even goaded you into games of catch with water balloons. Nowadays you’re a little bit moister, but now you can get your payback.

The Shock Ball Introducing the shock ball (not a referral link) from ThinkGeek. the principle of the game is simple enough, especially if you’ve ever played hot potato. However, the shock ball introduces a shocking twist to the game, literally. At random intervals, the ball emits an electrical shock. If the shocks cause you to drop the ball, you lose.

My sister & I used to shock each other after rubbing our feet on the carpet, and at times those shocks smarted. I’m curious just how violent of a shock the shock ball emits. Are you game?
