Giraffe Volleyball is where it’s at

Probably one of the weirdest and most whimsical games that we’ve come across in 2016 is sandwich puissant‘s Giraffes Volleyball Championship 2016. Now I may be sticking my neck out here, but with a title like that I don’t think we need to explain very much about what the game’s about. Clearly GVC 2016 is a giraffe-based sports game, right?

Giraffes Volleyball Championship 2016 takes place in a magical land where you (a giraffe) and another giraffe are playing volleyball. Using your long, retractable necks to volley that ball over the net into your opponent’s territory, you hope that your opponent will miss the ball, causing it to hit the ground.  If that happens, score one point for you. It’s pretty much exactly the way the rules of regular human volleyball works, except with giraffes with telescopic legs and necks.

How to Win at Giraffes Volleyball

To win at Giraffes Volleyball: Be the first to score 5 points, and you’ll be the glorious winner of the match. It seems simple, but it’s not really simple because it’s actually pretty hard. In fact, it’s not just your neck that’s retractable but your legs as well making playing and watching Giraffes Volleyball Championship 2016 a completely ridiculous experience. And because this is a spectacle of flailing limbs and necks, you should play it for that reason alone. Hey, that’s what sold me.

Fun fact: sandwich puissant is French for “powerful sandwich”. Don’t you feel a little bit richer just knowing that?
