Alka-Seltzer On The Head Duel

You may play this game as a quick up-front game or even as a 4-person tournament. 2 contestants, each armed with a squirt gun, will take five paces and turn to duel. On each of their foreheads, you will have attached an Alka-seltzer tablet with double stick tape (possibly use big rubber bands if tape doesn’t work). They draw and shoot the water at each other, the first one to dissolve the tablet on the other's forehead wins. Use swim goggles for each to protect their eyes. The tablet will fizz and foam all over the place.

Have towels close by for clean-up. A cheesy western song (think Clint Eastwood or Lone Ranger) and some “cowboys” or “cowgirls” add to this one.

Good game, but as said by others double stick tape didn't work very well

The game got a little drawn out for us as the tablets didn't melt very fast. On a positive note, however, the rubberband around the head as well as the goggles and squirt guns was highly amusing!

Double stick tape didn't work well for us once the sweat and water started flying, and we didn't have any back up rubber bands to try. Fun wet game though.
