Basketball game for the head for $8.61

Hey, guys! Just a heads up: The linked offer is already a bit older and the price of the gadget might have changed or it might not be available anymore.

We, the China gadgets editors, are fans of the popular drinking eehhhh children’s games and with this basketball game  for the head, we can come up with several game variants.

Basketball game

Scope of the basketball game

The game “Basket Game” or “Basket Case” includes a basket, which can be adapted individually to different head sizes by velcro strips. The dimensions of the basket are 26,5 x 5,3 x 26,5cm, which means that the basket has a diameter of 26.5cm, the net of the basket is 5.3cm deep and the total height of the frame is 26.5cm.

Basketball Game Example

In addition to a basket, 20 small plastic balls are included, 10 of them are white and 10 red. This is the starting point for a nice evening or any other time of the day, giving you a lot of room for – let’s say own interpretations of the game rules.?

Possible game variants of the basketball game

We had a short brainstorming on possible game rules, of course your own creativity has no limits.?

Duel – 1 vs. 1

In this type of game we recommend you to sit down at a distance of one to two meters, depending on your possibilities. To increase the level of difficulty you could also play it standing.

Because the game contains only one basket you have to take turns. The player who has the basket on his head should try to keep his head movement to a minimum for the sake of fairness, otherwise there will probably never be a hit.? The other person uses his 10 balls to hit the basket. The number of hits allows the person to take “sips” from his drink.  The person whose drink is empty first wins! The loser has to down his drink.

Team Deathmatch – x vs. x

For this gameplay more than one basket ist needed, because every player needs his own basket. Fortunately, the game is not too expensive ? Now it´s time to form teams. Because each player has 10 red and 10 white balls, you exchange with your opponents, so each team has only balls in one colour.

Here we go! Because each team has around 20-30 balls, you play on time. 30 seconds for every battle. The players try to throw as many balls as possible in the baskets of the opposing team – depending on how late it is already, the throwing time can be adapted as desired. Important: everyone can throw only one ball at one time – throwing a handful of balls into the crowd is not permitted. After the throwing time everyones counts their balls. The team, who sunk more balls in the baskets of the opponent, wins the round. For the punishment, the losers have to drink – I imagine this gameplay with a sangria bucket as a “team drink”, which could turn out as very funny.

Last Man Standing – No one is playing with you? Play with yourself!

There are always some party pooper at social gatherings or people too drunk to play a game, so there is only one thing left – play with yourself!

Basketball Game Single Player


Attach the basket to your own head, throw the ball vertically into the air and try to catch it with the basket again. To increase the difficulty, you can also try to catapult the ball to the basket. You will have fun with it! And maybe others will have fun watching you embarass yourself 😀

    Sorry to say but Donkey Kong Country is NOT better than its sequel, Diddy's Kong Quest. Everything that was done well in the first game was done EVEN BETTER in the sequel. Also, Super Metroid is leagues ahead of some of the choices above it, such as DKC, Mario World, and ALTTP (my opinion on those last 2, it is definitely better than DKC). However I think DKC 2 is better than Super Metroid, but they are my favorite and second favorite games respectively.

    The Super Nintendo era was such a great time to grow up in the former United States of America. The early 90's was a great time to be a kid!It really surprises me how 16-bit game design has not caught on like the over used retro 8-bit has. I was hoping games would start to graduate to the 16-bit era of nostalgia but it has not. Hopefully soon!
