Tower of Reps
Fun free-for-all dice game for two people or more that takes a different kind of balance…
Equipment: Dice, Flat Surfaces
Game: Line all the players up and place a big pile of dice about 30 yards away from the players. The objective is to have the tallest stack of dice at the end of the round. A good length for rounds is no longer than 6-8 minutes (otherwise you’ll just have a bunch of frustrated people with a lot of falling towers). On “go”, players will:
- RUN to the dice pile to get a die and run it back.
- ROLL the die.
- REP (Do DOUBLE the number they rolled).
- STACK the die.
If at any time a player’s stack tumbles down, they lose one die and put it off to the side, rebuild their tower, and continue.
I like to play several rounds of this, each with a theme (ie: warm-up exercises, all-abs, all-legs, etc…). The winner(s) of a round must then do TRIPLE reps for each die roll for the next round)s, and so on. I typically announce a new exercise change every two minutes, doing 3 or 4 different themed exercises in total.
Pro Tip: Older folks may have trouble stacking the dice. Also, this game wont work well in windy areas!
- Balance or Burpees: Instead of losing one die for a tower fall, the player keeps all their dice but has to knock out 10 burpees before rebuilding and continuing.
