“Blind Fetch” A Year Round Rexburg Game
This is a great game for double dates, groups, and families. It’s active, social, and fun (if you are willing to get into it). You can play it outside during the winter or the summer.
Imagine trying to quickly fetch a ball faster than your competitor. Oh yeah… there’s one catch… you’re blind : )
You have to fetch the ball quickest, but you have to close your eyes. The only guidance you have is your partners verbal directions. So I hope you’re a good listener…
Where to Play
You can play “Blind Fetch” anywhere in Rexburg that is wide open. Ideal places include: city parks, baseball fields, and football fields.
How to Play
1.) Blind Fetch requires at least 4 people to play.
2.) Two people to a team (There can be more than 2 teams if desired)
3.) The “Fetchers” (one from each team) FIRST close their eyes
4.) THEN the ball or frisbee is thrown out a distance (30 yards or so) by any player that still has their eyes open.
5.) Next, the count down from 5 to 0
6.) At 0 the goal is to for each team to work together and fetch the ball first.
7.) The blind person has to remain blind and should be led to the ball ONLY by verbal directions from his or her partner.
8.) First team to fetch the ball and return to the starting point (always remaining blind) wins!
