Children are built with a great deal of pent up energy, and the Arch Rival Game has definite potential for tiring them out before they return home. A clever proposal for a safe yet engrossing piece of playground equipment, this invention will instill a competitive edge that a kid may require to push himself later in life.
Essentially, the setup of Josh Hodgkinson's creation incorporates five arching poles that are rooted in the earth on either side of a central partition. Each bar is embraced by a single low-friction disk which can travel quickly from one side of the post to another with a substantial push. With a youngster or two positioned on each side, the aim of the Arch Rival Game is to accumulate points by launching saucers into the other player's score zone, while protecting your own.
