This is such a popular kind of activity, it seems that every part of the country is adopting its own version. If you’re a Peewee Herman, you might as well go home now, though actually, you could be good entertainment value on this test of stamina and endurance.
The Mersey Games is certainly all brawn over brain, oh apart from the one where you’re blindfolded, which needs you to listen (yes, we know that will be your biggest challenge) and then follow the instructions (hmm, maybe THAT is the tougher call).
So what’s in store? Well, there’s the Scouser versions of riding inflatable horsey hoppers Grand National style, a bungee pub run, shoe tossing (a bit like welly wanging but lighter), blindfolded bowling, the Scouser Duel gladiator style, a sumo wrestle (oh, you already have your own suit? Cool), a three-legged race or maybe four or five, a tug-o-war across the Mersey and a Mersey shower…no that’s not a Scouser version of something else porn-related but it does involve a bucket of icy water.
Sexy girly guides will lead you through the activities and endeavor to keep score, oh and take photos of you looking ridiculous. Talking of which, fancy dress is optional and can be provided for your chief stag.
We’re just wondering if you’ll survive this onslaught to carry on with a night out afterwards. Well, there’s always the pub and those legendary tales of the day to dine out on.
