Jump or Dive


A classic pool game that is fun for crazy participants, but slightly more entertaining for the onlookers.

You must have a pool with a diving board and is large enough for people to dive into.

  1. Whoever wants to play lines up outside the pool.
  2. Going one at a time, the player must get a running start and get a good bounce off the board. Then, at the last second, the leader either yells JUMP or DIVE.
  3. The player must quickly react and make the necessary adjustments. It begins to get hilarious when players start anticipating the call and try to adjust but end up with very painful belly flops.

One way to keep the game moving is to have an elimination.

For added fun: Yell JUMP or DIVE just a little too late!
