Cricket on steroids!
Edinburgh Turbo Cricket is the super-fast style of the sport that only takes an hour to play. No messing about breaking for tea. It's full-on action from start to finish. Some clever bod had a little think and decided it would be a great idea to take all the most exciting bits of cricket and create a new form of the game. So he did. Then he had another bright idea: chuck in extras like turbo overs, a joker, and penalties to make things even more exciting. So he did that as well. The team size was cut from 11 to 6. The pitch size shrunk. The corky ball replaced with one that doesn't give anyone a shiner. The results? Have a go and see for yourselves.
Unlimited turns for batsmen
That's right, folks. In a break from tradition, a batsman can take loads of turns. Here's the catch: fail to retire at 20 and there will be hefty penalty. Here's another little twist that makes Edinburgh Turbo Cricket very interesting: all of you must bowl. Things aren't always what they seem in this game. Hit a 6 and you'll get 10 runs. It's even possible to bag 20 off a single ball. This is an 'anything can happen' kind of game.
Edinburgh Turbo Cricket is also excellent for team spirit. You need that on a stag night. Play before you go out round Grassmarket or George Street. Break the ice and get everyone in the mood for a night on the beer and shots.
