I wasn't taught the US kind of dodgeball...the Brit
equivalent is much tamer.
The court is simply any large room that can survive foam balls being hurled around in it
. There's usually only one ball
, sometimes two if you wanted to up the ante
s. Just a free for all
, every man for himself
. Most of the time, I played with around 29 other people...mucho funno
Get everyone out.
To get someone out, you hit them below the knees
with the ball. Even if you ram the ball into your own shin you are out. If the ball so much as touches a hair below your kneecap
s, bye bye
ing the ball, because obviously that will get you out.
The ball is thrown in to the game by anybody who is willing.
Once you are out, that is it. Finito
Unlike the above (US) rules, you can pick up the ball.
The winner is the last person left
I was awesome
at this game. Seriously, I rock
ed. See, our school hall was divided in two with a white line
, so if you wanted to stay in for as long as possible you just had to keep in the half which doesn't contain the ball
. Of course, nobody at that school liked me that much so I ended up being chase
d by the people with the ball. What fun
