Rather than having the traditional 2 or 4 players, the 15-foot by 15-foot mat allows you to have many more players, and is perfect for the outdoors. But it comes for a hefty price: $2,000
A popular game that we all have played as kids, and even as adults with our family is Twister. Contorting our body into all kinds of shapes as you attempt to place your hand or foot on a particular colored circle is a fun-filled activity that doubles up as a bit of physical workout coupled with a barrel of laughs. While there are the regular playing Twister mats that are available everywhere, here come's one that ups the ante, and how.
You can now use a giant inflatable Twister board instead of the traditional one. While the instructions don't make a mention of where it can be used, it could be used as a fun accessory in the pool as a fun summer game.
Despite its gigantic size, the rules of the game are still the same: Each player spins a wheel according to which a person has to place one's hand or foot on each colored circle. If your hand is already on a specified colored circle you need to move it to another circle of the same specified color. You are not allowed to touch the board with your body. Hammacher Schlemmer the company that has come up with this new kind of Twister board has added its own take to the game.
Instead of the traditional 2 or 4 person game, this huge inflatable Twister board is about 15-foot by 15-foot, can accommodate more people to join the game. This board really takes the saying "the more the merrier" to a whole new level. In addition, with the inflatable board, trying to maintain your balance will be fun and challenging.

An included 24" diameter, 3'-high wheel spun at the beginning of each turn indicates which hand or foot players are to use and what color dot to touch," said the company's website
Along with the inflatable mat, a 1-horsepower air blower is also included with the blow-up mat. Add to this a 3-foot-tall spinning wheel that will direct the move of every player.
