Great Brits: Game On #flipit

Great Brits: Game On #FlipIt

2nd August 2016

It’s nearly time. The athletes have landed, and if you’ve been following our blog post series, your living room is sorted, your sofa celebrations are nailed, and you’ve got a range of culinary treats that will keep you and your guests satisfied.

It’s time we got into the spirit of the action. It’s time to get competitive. Team GB’s athletes are driven forward by their insatiable desire to win. That’s why they train so hard and push themselves to such limits.

We’re not suggesting you go to such lengths. But we can help you add a bit of friendly competition to your sofa while you’re enjoying this epic summer of sport.

Introducing: the DFS Great Brits: Game On #flipit challenge.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Get hold of a coaster. Any coaster will do, but probably best that it’s not too thick or too fragile. 
  2. Position your coaster on the edge of a table, with your fingers under the coaster
  3. Flick the coaster upwards with one action, allowing (TECHNICAL PART ALERT) at least 180o of turn
  4. Catch it!
  5. Do it again, and see how many you can successfully flip and catch in 60 seconds
