What You'll Need:

  • A Playground Ball (or other ball that bounces well)
  • A Hard, Outdoor Playing Surface

At the Party:
  1. Give each player a nickname, such as Green Knight, King Arthur, Merlin, etc.
  2. To begin the game, one player bounces the ball as high into the air as possible and calls out the nickname of another player.
  3. As soon as the ball leaves the bouncer's hand, all of the players run away except for the player who has been called; this player must try to catch the ball before it hits the ground again.
  4. If the called player is successful in catching the ball, he or she becomes the bouncer, bouncing the ball into the air and calling the nickname of another player.
  5. As before, the called player must rush to catch the ball before it hits the ground.
  6. If a player fails to catch the ball, that player is out of the game, and the last bouncer bounces the ball again.
  7. Play continues until only one player remains and is named the winner.
