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 the 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.
