Founded with the goal of sprucing up spiritless special events, Sumo Mania bumps soirées into the stratosphere with all the supplies needed for four hours of simulated sumo excitement. Foam-filled sumo outfits ensconce would-be rikishi, or wrestlers, in a layer of protective padding imitative of the sport’s most physically adept athletes. Once suited up and prepared for battle, wrestlers are let loose upon an extra-thick padded mat to settle lifelong grudges and decide who gets first dibs on the buffet line. To maintain a fair match, one of Sumo Mania’s qualified and whistle-equipped referees will be on hand as an impartial arbiter of any disputes over rules, victory conditions, or universal systems of morality.
