You form a circle and choose a person to start. That person tosses a
ball (preferably a soft one, like Nerf) to someone across the room. If
you catch it, you toss it to someone else. If you drop it, you sit down.
Last person standing is the winner. It's a good rainy day game and nobody
gets hurt, and hopefully nothing gets broken. :)

Variation 1: Setup: You need a large open space and at least enough soft-mediem
hard balls to have one team have enough balls to have one per player. You
can have a lot more, or a lot less. You divide into equell teams. Playing
area: Mark a large rectangle with a line through the middle. Rules: You
throw the ball tring to hit one of the members of the other team. If they
catch the ball, the person is out. If the ball hits a person in the head,
the person is out who threw it. That all happens before the ball bounces.
If the team with a person out hits a member of the other team, all their
members are in again. If it bounces, the ball does not follow any of the
Variation 2: The only change of rules is that the team with the person
out must hit the player of the other team to get the team member in.

You divide up in two teams. Drag a garden hose or other similar divider
between the yard. The teams each go to their own side, and may not
cross the divider. Gather as many balls as possible and split them
up between the two teams to start. You throw a ball at the other
team, if you hit them below the head, they are out. If they catch
the ball, you are out. The last person in is the winner.

This was Dodgeball played with frisbees instead of balls. Usually
there were two teams and a boundaries that you had to stay inside of.
We usually had a few frisbees, 2, 3 or 4, depending on how many kids were
playing (sometimes up to 15 or 20 at a time). We always played that
if you caught someone's thrown frisbee then the thrower was out.
played until one person or team remained. Contributed by Brian Litteral OR One team is against a wall and the other team has playground balls at least 10 meters or so away from the other team. The throwing team can't cross the line and they begin throwing the balls at the other team.
