Luib The Game

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki


Founded in 1987.

Rules, Regulations and Gameplay[edit]

Luib is a sport that nurtures strategy, skill, subtlety, speed of movement and thought and strength of character but most of all, it is a game that cultivates integrity. Luib is an ethical game for a better, more peaceful, and more ethical world.[1]

Rules of the Game[edit]

Each game of Luib is called a 'Nostril'; one Nostril comprises three 'Noses', similar to sets in tennis. It is possible for a Nostril of Luib to end with no decisive winner, if overall there is a tie between the winners of the Noses. In these cases, particularly in World Championships, there is a Nose Off. This is a final winner-take-all Nose of Luib to determine an overall winner between two or more tied competitors[2].

Five is the 'magic number' in Luib, as each player begins with 5 lives, can hold either (or both) ball(s) for a maximum of 5 seconds and can take a maximum of five paces holding either (or both) ball(s).

The Ethics of the Game[edit]

Fundamentally an ethical game of integrity, there is no referee; players are responsible for monitoring/keeping track of their own lives, time with the ball, steps, avoidance and hits. If players behave unethically (e.g. cheating), the game falls apart and cannot be played. In addition, Luib is a non-contact sport, aside from a move called 'smothering', whereby a player may 'smother' (e.g. hug) another player in possession of a, or multiple, ball(s), in order to stop them from throwing it at them.

Sustainable Service Relationships[edit]

Luib is currently played in around 20 schools around Africa, Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific, including United World College, Thailand. What really makes Luib unique is that the game is intrinsically linked to Service. Luib is proud to be a partner of Child Rescue Nepal,[3][4] the leading UK registered charity that works exclusively for disadvantaged and stigmatised Nepalese children and young people. Every Luib Championship is interwoven with workshops, which raise awareness of the scourge of human trafficking and commit collaboratively to doing something about it. A simple way Luib raises awareness of the work of Child Rescue Nepal is by featuring the charity’s logo on all their branded products, designed and ethically sourced, by students.
