The action can get rough when everyone scrambles to score in this football-inspired game.

Number of participants: 3+
For:
Intensity level: High
Preparations: None or not specified.
Equipment: a football, open playing area with a goal line
 

One player is It, who holds the football and faces the goal line while standing near the far end of the playing area. The rest of the players stand behind It in a group, also facing the goal line. It throws the football back over his/her head and all the other players scramble to catch it. The one who comes up with the ball then runs toward the goal line and attempts to score a point. However, as soon as the ball is caught, all the other players, including It, become defenders and try to tackle the ball carrier before he/she can reach the goal. When that happens, the ball carrier becomes the new It and the process is repeated until someone manages to score. There are no teams. It is the ball carrier against everyone else and it can get a little rough. The winner is the player who scores the most points.
