Head Banging Boogie

Head Banging Boogie is a great game for a crowd of any size. It’s sure to get your participants moving and the crowd going!

PREP TIME– 3 Minutes

ITEMS NEEDEDPantyhose (knee-high or thigh-high) & Tennis Ball for each participant

GAME TIME– 5-10 Minutes



Before you begin your Head Banging Boogie Battle, stuff a tennis ball in each leg of pantyhose. Make sure it goes all the way to the end.

When you start, hand each participant their pantyhose and have them place it on their head, making sure it covers their entire forehead, but no lower.

Pair up into four groups and space participants out enough that they have room for their battles. The goal of the game is to remove the pantyhose and tennis ball from your opponent’s head. This can be done by strategically swinging their own head and pulling the head gear off.

Give 90 seconds per round to determine a winner. If neither person has won in the allotted time, both are eliminated. Work the game down to a final pairing, bring them up front and have them battle to determine a winner.

Alternate Version

Play a battle royal version where it is everyone competing against one another at the same time.

If you elect to play this version, I highly recommend eye protection of some kind since it will be much more chaotic.

Last person with their headgear in place is the winner!


1. Have a few extra sets of pantyhose on hand in case one of them tears.

2. Play some great head banging music while groups are playing.

3. Tape circles for competitors to stay within. This will keep the game from dragging on.
