Pass And Toss Relay Single Line

Source: Games For The Playground, Home, School And Gymnasium

_16 to 60 players._

_Gymnasium; playground; schoolroom._

_Bean bags; oat sacks._

The players stand in two or more even ranks, facing sideways. The
players at either end step one long pace forward of the ranks, to the
points marked 1 and 10 respectively, as they are to catch the bag
tossed from some other player. Player Number One has a bag and at the
signal for starting runs toward the rear, and as he runs tosses the
bag to Number Ten. The line immediately moves forward one place,
Number Two stepping into the place vacated by Number One. As soon as
Number Ten has caught the bag, he takes his place in line with the
rank and passes the bag to his next neighbor, Number Nine. The bag is
then passed rapidly up the line until it is received by Number Three,
who tosses it to Number Two. Number Two, in his turn, as soon as he
receives the bag, dashes for the rear, tossing the bag as he goes to
the player standing at 10, who in this instance will be Number One.
The line again moves up, Number Three now stepping out to the place
marked 1.

This play is continued until Number One is back in his original
position. The rank which first gets the bag around to Number One after
he returns to his original position wins the game. Number One should
hold the bag up at arm's length as soon as he gets it as a signal that
his rank has completed its play. As this feature adds much to the
facility with which an umpire may judge of the winning rank, it may
well be a required part of the play, the rank winning whose Number One
is first to raise aloft his bag.

It adds much to the interest of the game to have a general
umpire and scorekeeper who shall decide which is the winning
line, and post the score where the players may see it.
