What’s more popular in Brazil than soccer? Pretty much nothing—although, playing games on your phone might be a close second.

That’s why Brazilian fast food chain Giraffas has just come out with a smartphone game that uses special trays designed to look like a soccer field, just in time for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in June.

How it works: First, download a free app on your smartphone. Then you set the phone up at one end of the field, in the net. You can wad up little paper balls from the paper on the tray, then practice flicking your way to goal after goal.

This game would also be great if you were stuck in an office on a Thursday at 5pm.
