Steal the Ball
Sent in by: Lorraine of Sugar Land, TX

This game's a real steal!

This game is for 7 or more players and should be played outside or in an open area.

To play, divide into 2 even teams and choose one person to be the caller.

Both teams line up and everyone gets a number: 1, 2, or 3.

The caller then puts a ball between the two teams and calls out a number: 1, 2, or 3.

If players' numbers are called, they have to run to the ball and try to grab it. So if 2 is called, then the 2s from both teams run up and try to grab the ball.

If one player gets the ball, she has to run back to her team while the other 2 tries to tag her. If the other player gets the ball, he has to try and tag the other 2 as he runs back to his team.

If a player gets back to her team with the ball without being tagged, her team gets a point. If she gets tagged, then the other team gets the point.

The first team to reach 5 points wins!
