Running, throwing and avoiding the tag make this a very active game.
Intensity level: High
Preparations: None or not specified.
Equipment: a ball, two bases
This game is for three players at a time. Designate two bases (trees, paper plates, any stationary objects) about twenty feet (six meters) apart. One player is “It” and stands midway between the two bases. The other two players are the “basemen” and they take positions at each base, one of them holding the ball. The object of the game is for It to reach one of the bases before a baseman can tag him/her with the ball. The basemen can throw the ball back and forth to each other, and It may not touch it. Each time It reaches a base, he/she scores a point, but if It gets tagged, the baseman who made the tag becomes the new It and a new player takes over as baseman. Continue playing until all players have had a chance to be It in the middle. The winner is the player who reaches the most bases and scores the most points before getting tagged.
