ROUND UP

THIS GAME IS PLAYED BY THREE OR MORE PERSONS. ONE
PERSON IS "IT" AND COUNTS TO A CERTAIN NUMBER WHILE
THE OTHERS RUN AND HIDE. WHEN THROUGH COUNTING, THE
COUNTER RUNS AFTER THE OTHERS AND CATCHES THEM BY
TOUCHING THEM WITH TWO HANDS. WHEN A PERSON IS CAUGHT
HE THEN HELPS CATCH THE OTHERS. EVERYONE THAT GETS
CAUGHT HELPS CATCH THE OTHERS UNTIL EVERYONE IS CAUGHT.
USUALLY THE FIRST ONE CAUGHT IS "IT" FOR THE NEXT

INDIAN BALL

ONE PLAYER HITS A BALL WITH A BAT WHILE THE OTHER
PLAYERS STAND OUT IN THE PLAYING FIELD AND CATCH THE
BALL. IF A PLAYER CATCHES THE BALL ON THE "FLY"
(DOESN'T LET IT TOUCH THE GROUND) HE AUTOMATICALLY
GETS A TURN AT BAT. IF HE CATCHES THE BALL AFTER IT
TOUCHES THE GROUND, THE BATTER LAYS THE BAT ON THE
GROUND AND THE CATCHER TRIES TO HIT THE BAT BY ROLLING
IT ALONG THE GROUND. IF THE BALL HITS THE BAT, IT
WILL BOUNCE UP INTO THE AIR AND THE BATTER MUST, THEN,
CATCH IT. IF THE BATTER FAILS TO CATCH IT, THE ROLLER
OF THE BALL THEN GETS A TURN TO BAT. THE BATTER THEN
TAKES TO THE FIELD.
