Once upon a time there was a game for Gods, where men could become heroes, where their team mates could hoist them onto their shoulders celebrating their victories, where onlookers could chant anthems and the players became legends in their own lunchtimes. The game was just football.
Then something dark and incredibly twisted transformed this game of skill into something so wickedly vindictive, it turned fans and friends into puppet masters, players into weak victims and it became the most FUN you have ever had on a footie pitch if you like being crippled by random shocks of muscle-limpening electricity.
There’s something rather S&M about this new craze that is sweeping the stag activity trends, but pain is good right?
Basically you are set up as opposing footie teams as normal but that’s where the ‘normal’ ends. Each player has a pulser strapped around one arm or leg and the control for each pulser is held by who you thought were your mates at the control desk. They send a short little shock to your pulser whenever they like, rendering your limb momentarily limp and you either crumpling to the ground or looking like you’re asking to go to the little boys room.
Makes no difference if you have the ball, are in goal, tackling, shooting a penalty or doing the dribble of your fantasy career – they’re in charge and you’ll be taken down in your prime.
Or are you man enough to beat the shock? Don’t worry, there’s no permanent damage – only to your pride. You’re up and running again in seconds. Something tells me you’ll be keen to swap to the bench and get your own back very quickly in this devilishly funny, mischievously masochistic and incredibly addictive stag activity.
