_20 to 100 players._

_Playground; gymnasium; schoolroom._

_Any ball; bean bag._

The players are divided into two or more groups which compete against
each other. Each group is divided into two ranks, the players standing
side by side, with a distance of from two to five feet between each
two players. The ranks of a group face each other, with a distance of
five feet between them. One rank should stand farther to the rear than
its _vis-a-vis_, so that each player is opposite a space instead of a


The first player in one rank of each group has a ball. At a given
signal this is thrown to the first player in the opposite rank. This
player throws it quickly to the second player of the first rank, and
so on in zigzag form to the end of the line, where the ball is
immediately sent back again in the same way to the front. The group
which first gets its ball back to the head wins.

When players have had a little practice with one ball, two or more
should be used, the starters starting the second ball down the line as
soon as the first ball has reached the third player. Where several
balls are used in this way, the last player of the line must hold the
balls until all are received before starting them on their return
