You can, and it is a lot of fun too. Here are a few suggestions. These games will help you to familiarize yourself with your new toy and get hours of practice in. You’ll be a pro hoverboarder in no time.
Tug Of War
Tug of War is a classic that we have all played at one time or another. It’s also a fun way for you and a friend to practice some moves with your new toy. Get on your hoverboards, grab one end of the rope each and fight while trying stay on your boards. This one is very challenging, but also very fun.
Tag. You’re it. We’ve all played this game. It’s an old one, but tons of fun. It’s a simple game where one person is “it” and chases everyone else until he tags another player who is now “it.”Then that person repeats the process. This game is even more fun when the players are all riding hoverboards and chasing each other. Get together with some friends and play this game in a whole new modern way.
Turn Out The Lights
If you want to kick things up a notch, find a dark open area and play tag in the dark. This is a fun and challenging take on the game when the only light that you have is your hoverboard headlights. This is a very fun way to play. Spooky too.
Have A Race
If you own a hoverboard, you have to have a race with your friends at some point. How could you not? You can either have a straight-up race up and down the street or you can create an obstacle course to make things even more interesting. You can even set it up so that the winner gets a prize. Hoverboard racing is a good time for everyone. There’s no limit to the number of racers you can have.
Okay, everybody get on your hoverboard and do your best not to let the others knock you off of it. Last man standing wins. This is harder than it sounds. My advice? Play dirty. Also, try to come up behind the other person when they are distracted. They hate this. This is a good one to practice maneuverability.
Obstacle courses are great for races, but they are also fun on their own. You can get really creative with any courses that you make. See if you and your friends can make it through to the end. Some cool ideas for obstacle courses include things that you have to duck under to pass and narrow areas that require precision driving to get through. A few well placed eggs here and there is also a good thing. If you break them on your way through you lose.
Play some of these games, and you will be a hoverboard pro pretty quickly. All it takes is practice. Luckily for you, practice is fun on a hoverboard.
