Game Description

This game needs a suitable building and some preparation work. You need a location above the playing area from which to suspend the rope, the best approach is to suspend an eyelet or carabiner from your chosen location and run the rope through it. This allows for adjustments.

Fasten the ball onto the end of the rope. Draw a circle centred around the rope.

One Patrol go in the middle, the others stand around the outside of the circle. The ball is thrown at the Scouts in the middle, a hit anywhere is out. The players can no lie at the edge of the circle where they can't be hit by the ball.

The last Scout in is the winner. You can have a play-off between the winners of each patrol.
