_10 to 30 or more players._

_Playground; gymnasium._

_Hand ball; basket ball._

All of the players but one form a circle, with considerable space
between each two. The odd player stands in the center, holding the
ball. He tosses it to any player in the circle, and immediately runs
away outside the circle. The player to whom the ball is thrown must
catch it, place it on the ground in the center of the circle, and at
once chase the one who threw it. The one who threw the ball tries to
get back to the center of the circle and touch the ball before he can
be tagged. Should he succeed in this, he joins the circle, and the
other player throws the ball. If the first center player is tagged
before returning to the ball, he throws again, and the one who chased
him returns to the circle.

This game is very popular with children.
