The year of 2017, a Friday like any other. Lydia Allen, Elllie Baird and Alex Gallo were going to see Joel Willison's play when they met him in CFA, in that weird ambiguous space outside Harbach and the Round room. "Do you want to join the other frisbee group?". They asked Joel. "Sure" he replied. They hung out for a bit like the amazing people they were. Alex had a frisbee with him and they were throwing it around with much joy. Until it dropped upside down. and Ellie kicked it across the floor. They all stopped. "that's kinda cool" they whispered in awe. AND THUS FLOORSBEE WAS BORN.
You must play in the CFA waiting area outside Harbach theatre, the floor is optimal Floorsbee space.
Play until you are tired from having so much fun or Campus safety kicks you out cause the game is too awesome for their brains to comprehend.
Use the CFA benches as goals.
The more people there are then the bigger the field
If something inside you says its a foul then odds are it's a foul
To put the disc back into play the team that just got scored on kicks the frisbee back through the goal.
The other team needs to be behind the halfway mark before the new point starts (There is discussion over whether everyone should say "floorsbee" together before the point. it has not been decided. more information to come in the future)
In the event that both feet from opposing teams land on the disc at the same time everyone stops and the two players play rock paper scissors for possession.
ROCK PAPER SCISSORS SHOOT (ON SHOOT. NOT ANY OF THAT OTHER WEIRD CRAP) best of one match
If the frisbee flips over (so it is graphic/flat side up) then everyone puts their hands up, stops moving and yells "FLIP!"
The player closest to it flips it over and play continues
There are goalies. just don't be annoying about it.
You can take one step when you are stepping on the frisbee. You CANNOT scoot across the field with the frisbee on your foot. You can, however, dribble it like you would a soccer.
You cannot take the frisbee away from someone if they have their foot on it (we need to figure this one out better cause someone really could just stand there with the frisbee and the entire game would just stop for an indeterminate amount of time)
Shoes arent required but the game has the potential to hurt your feet a LOT if you arent wearing shoes.
There is no scoring system and probably won't be for a while. Obviously a point is a point but if you're actually keeping score then you need to get over yourself, Floorsbee is about fun, not winning.
There has been talk of playing 15 minute innings of 5 minutes or 5 innings of 15 minutes but that could very well be hogwash.
Floorsbee's relatiosnip with Frisbee
Frisbee players sort of turn their noise up against this sport. they won't admit it. but they think it's weird (or stupid, depending who you ask). and they're frisbee plays so that's saying something.
But head's up. If they actually ever play the sport odds are they will love it more than you. because floorsbee. is. awesome
Will it be fun?
yeah. just try it.
Will I be good?
yeah. It's more impressive if you aren't. Trust me. you'll be good
What frisbee is best to use?
Honestly we're trying to figure this out as well. Right now the frisbee that is used most is Alex Gallo's. ----> you can use others. they just don't work as well for some reason. we're trying to find out what makes a good floorsbee frisbee
When does it happen?
WHENEVER YOU WANT! this game could de done with at least 2 v 2 and go as big as however much you want. you can start up a game by yourself and friends or there are random floorsbee games whenever. There isn't a set schedule for when we play but there is a facebook page. so just ask around and someone will help you get on the page.
"This sounds like a weird game"
let me guess. you havent played. just wait till you play. you'll love it
just wait guys. this sport is gonna go somewhere.
