Care for a game of Chair Jousting?

I listen to the Russell Howard and Jon Richardson show quite a lot to take my mind off things, and one of their segments is called Bored Games. Which is pretty self-explanatory. They are games that you either invent or play when you are bored. One such game came up that I found hilarious, as they attempted to do it on radio, and being such a visual game you had to rely on the sounds instead (and your imagination).

So what is it? Well, you need office chairs, the ones with wheels. You need to find either two walls, or two corners opposite each other. One opponent to go in one corner, the other opponent in the other, backs facing each other. Then the adjudicator will blow the whistle, and both players are to push off their corners and zoom towards each other and hit the backs of their chairs in the middle. The winner is the one who does not spiral out of control.

I would like to get this up and running at our work, as I believe we have the perfect chairs, but since it is an open plan office it might be slightly difficult (not many walls/corners opposite each other). I think Health & Safety might also have something to say about it.

I do know there is a more hardcore version, which is when you actually get brooms and use them as Joust sticks but not sure if I really want to do this one … a bit too much in the flavour of Jackass.
