Team games: Body Guards

Contributed by: Luke Shaw, Diocese of Nelson

bodyguardsSThis game is best played in a hall with a halfway mark. Divide your group into 2 teams. Each team has a certain number of cones or plastic buckets set up at their end of the playing area in a straight line, evenly spaced apart (5 works well).

By throwing soft balls, teams have to try and knock over the other team’s cones, while at the same time protecting their own  – without crossing the halfway mark.

They can’t touch or move their cones: once they are knocked over, they stay over. The team with all their cones knocked over first, loses.
