90s Games We Played – Dhudhudza


These games were very basic but kept us entertained. This ball game consisted of an empty 750ml bottle of Olivine cooking oil and sand.


Team [X] needed to fill up the bottle with sand. Team [A] would try to strike the players while they filled the sand. If you were hit you would be eliminated. A member of team X could catch the ball without it touching the ground. if he managed to do that then he could throw it as far as he could. whilst giving other players time to fill the bottle with sand. Once the sand is full then the players will have to start emptying the bottle again while dodging the ball. Once the bottle is empty again then those who were eliminated would regain a second life. Otherwise if all are eliminated then the teams swap.
