Pillow fight
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
 
A public pillow fight in Bologna, Italy.A pillow fight is a common game mostly played by young children (but can also occur with teens and adults) in which they engage in mock physical conflict, utilizing pillows as weapons.

Many times pillow fights occur during children's sleepovers. Since pillows are soft, injuries rarely occur. The heft of a pillow can still knock a young person off balance, especially on a soft surface such as a bed, which is a common venue. A useful technique in a pillow fight is to bundle the nibs. In earlier eras, pillows would often break, shedding feathers throughout a room. Modern pillows tend to be stronger and are often filled with a solid block of artificial filling, so breakage occurs far less frequently.

[edit] Rules of the Pillow Fights
Pillow fights are a game played to let out energy and rage in a mostly harmless way. In a pillow fight players can split up into teams or just fend for themselves. Then each player either starts off with a pillow or has to find the pillows hidden throughout the house. Then each player starts to attack the other player with the pillow, trying to avoid being smacked by a player in the head. They usually aim for the legs and stomach area. In this game there is no winner. The game ends when all the players are tired or the players just decide to surrender, or someone cheats by taking all of the pillows,or if one has knocked to the floor and one is to win. This game takes more skill than one would think. Trying to attack their opponent while trying to defend themselves from the crashing blows of the opponents pillow. Overall the game is just senseless fun and is not played for a prize but for its entertainment value.


[edit] Organized pillow fights
On November 14, 2008 BBC Points West broke the World Record in pillow fighting as part of BBC Children in Need at Butlins in Minehead, Somerset, UK which was observed by Guinness Records.

Pillow fighting became part of flash mob culture with pillow fight flash mobs popping up in cities around the world.

It is also one of the match types among women wrestlers called Divas in World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). Most often, this type of match is booked as a Lingerie Pillow Fight, in which the women "compete" in lingerie and little or no actual wrestling takes place.

In January 2007, Reuters reported that a Pillow Fight League was operating in bars in Toronto.[1] Pre-selected female "fighters" with stage personalities are paid small amounts to stage regular, unscripted fights. The rules call for "no lewd behavior, and moves such as leg drops or submission holds are allowed as long as a pillow is used".

Students at Columbia University have incorporated a Spring Pillow Fight into the spring semester version of their bi-annual primal scream tradition.[2] Students run into the center of campus screaming and pillow fighting on midnight of the Sunday of finals week as a way to relieve stress.
