Game description

Everyone stands in a circle with their slightly spread so that their feet are touching their neighbour’s feet. A player in the middle tries to throw a ball through a player’s legs. The players standing in the circle are allowed to try and stop this with their hands. If the ball is shot through someone’s legs, they must swap placed with the player in the middle


Instead of the split position each player can stop the ball going through the space to his right (space between him and the next player). This means that the diameter of the circle can be increased.


There is one point awarded for each shot crossing the line. Everyone either has 3 minutes to score as many shots as possible or everyone has 10 goes in the middle.
