MayaFlya Game Ideas

You have just purchased the most versatile, fun and safe flying disc on earth. See below for just 6 of the 50+ current uses listed on our website. But more than just being a handy gadget, lets get to the games:

NOTE: Some of these games require more than one disc. Since 2008 The Ringer: Toss a lofty gentle throw to your buddy while they try to catch it with their finger in the hole of the disc like a skewer.

MayaFlya Golf: Use a tree, a doorknob down the hall, a lawn chair, a laundry bin, etc as your target, take aim and shoot. Winner of that hole chooses next target.

Dooley: Throw two discs from your one hand at the same time to your buddy who tries to catch with only one hand. Catch 1 = 1 pt., 2 = 3 pts. Play to 11. Either team play (you and your bud vs. the bad guys) or 1 on 1. If 1 on 1, you must always make good throws (or re-throw if its a bad one) This game is extra good if holding a drink in your free hand. Pro rules: No body catches allowed - using your body as a backboard and then grabbing with your hand.

Monkey in the middle: Just like it sounds – can play either: As soon as it hits the ground its dead and the one who made the bad throw or missed catch is the monkey, or its still live if it hits the ground and its a race to get it.

Bowling: Line 'em up and knock 'em down. Cups, corks, whatever you have on hand. Keep away: Same as monkey in the middle but with teams.

Juggle tossing: One MayaFlya per person. Toss it to the next person and look quick b/c one’s coming your way. Make the pair, triangle, square, etc as close or far as you like.

Solitaire: Toss it as close to the celing as you can without touching it. You must catch the disc to have that toss count.

Ultimate: Same rules as ultimate frisbee but better played on a smaller field – indoor or out.

Shootout: Like a soccer shootout – the goalie stands in front of a net or a door or any other designated goal to defend. The shooter stands behind a line 10, 15, 20 feet away and fires one shot at a time. Take 5 shots and then switch and keep track of the score.

War: Get at either end of a ping pong table or any other table that keeps some distance between the players. Start nailing each other. Head shots worth 2. If a clean catch is made (no body catches) a point is given to the catcher. This all sounds violent, but it is one of our funnest games. The up and down to dodge and then pick up discs is a major cardio work out. No more than one player per side is recommended. Eye protection encouraged.

Regular ol’ catch: But closer and safer – indoors our out, the MayaFlya won't ding your walls like a plastic disc and b/c it doesn't fly as far, you will be close enough to your throwing partner that conversations will come out of nowhere.

Tag: Chase your kids or friends around the yard or house and safely hit them with a shot – they are then it ... repeat. Dodge disc: Just like with balls but with a soft, safe MayaFlya

Cob web cleaner: Can’t reach that cob web with a broom and ladder? No problem. Just take aim

with a MayaFlya.

  • Nap Pillow: Roll it up and sneak in a few winks between classes, meetings and calls.

  • Eye covers: Put one over your eyes to keep the light out while snoozin’

  • Cozier coozie: Hold it inside out around your drink and tuck your fingers into the lip for a secure

    and warm hold.

  • Coaster: Grandma will be happy you didn't ruin her finish.

  • Pot holder: You probably shouldn’t pick up a hot pot with it, but could put one on the table on top

    of a MayaFlya and you'll be fine.
