About

TugSmart GAME

Introduction

We are raising funds to help manufacture the first batch of a new game device named TugSmart. 

TugSmart is intended as a sports game between two people. This game is similar to tug-of-war; however, unlike ordinary tug of war, strength is not necessarily a controlling factor to win. Instead, outsmarting the other player is key to winning. A smart player can win by using the other player’s moves to his or her advantage.

The object is to offset the other player’s balance and, as a result, knock him/her off his/her footing. One player wins when the other player loses balance and moves one or both of his feet.

This game can be played indoors or outdoors and is suitable for ages six and up. Whether played indoors or out, it is best to play this game on padded or similarly soft surfaces. This game can be played with or without wearing shoes. This game is best enjoyed by persons similar in age with similar arm length and similar strength. Most of the time, the winner is decided within only a few minutes. 

Benefits of this Game

  • Players can develop sports skills and sports tactics because the game requires sports skills just like any other sports. In order to win the game, the player needs to think and develop his own strategy and sharpen his senses as he needs to read, sense, and/or react to the opponent’s move. A player often can win this game by playing smart and taking advantage of the other player’s move.
  • Players can develop strength and muscle in many parts of body. The game requires strength in their arms, legs, thighs and waist.
  • Players can develop the skills and senses to outsmart the opponent.
  • Players can develop skills and/or strength to balance on their feet.
  • Players will have fun while playing TugSmart game.

Why children can enjoy this game.

  • This game can be played by 2 persons anytime they have a few minutes since one game does not last long.
  • There is no need for extensive training. Players can learn this game after participating a few times.
  • This game can be played as a tournament. Tournaments can be structured as Round 1, Round 2, etc. depending upon how many participants are involved.

Since it does not take a long time to play a game, the players can be given multiple opportunities before deciding the winner who will advance. For example, winners can be determined by winning 2 out of 3 games or 3 out of 5 games. The final winner among all the players in a tournament becomes the champion of the tournament.

This game can also be played by several groups of people as a competition among the groups, such as classes.

This Game meets NASPE Standards

  • Standard 1: Demonstrates competency in motor skills and movement patterns needed to perform a variety of physical activities.

Risks and challenges

We are working with a local manufacturer to manufacture TugSmart game devices. The success of this project will be dependent upon successful manufacturing on the part of the manufacturer. However, although it might take a little more time, we are confident that we will be able to produce TugSmarts.
