A talented knight must not only be able to fight with a sword, but he must also be able to defend himself quickly with the help of a shield. A knight stands in a playing field with his shield. The attackers stand outside of the playing field and try to hit the knight with a ball. The knight must defend the balls with his shield. If a player manages to hit the knight, he is allowed to become a knight.
Similar to dodge ball. However the ball may be rebounded with the shield. The playing field must however be enlarged depending on the number of players so that they don't all come into contact with each other with the shields and to avoid hectic.
As the knight, the aim is to stay in the middle as long as possible. Hits also count if the ball hits the ground first then the knight.
