Any number of players can participate, but the best groups number between four and sixty. You will need half as many beanbags as there are players for this game. Decide on a time limit for the game before play begins.
Divide the players into groups of not more than ten. Each of these groups plays a separate game. Each group chooses sides, which stand facing one another at a distance of eight or ten feet; give the beanbags to the players of one side. The player at the right end of the beanbag row is number 1 of that line. He begins the game by throwing his bag to the player opposite him in line, who catches it and throws it back. Number 1 of the beanbag row then throws his bag to Number 2 of the opposite line, and so on until he has come to the last player, after which he begins again with Number 1.
Another fun beanbag game is catch it, drop it. Players create a circle around a player who is holding a beanbag. The player throws the beanbag to any player in the circle and calls out “Catch it” or “Drop it.” The player must do the opposite of what is called; if he doesn't, he must sit down. The last player left standing in the circle wins.
Meanwhile, as soon as Number 1 of the beanbag line has received his bag after his first throw, Number 2 of the same line begins throwing to Number 1 of the opposite line, and so on. In like manner, when Number 2 has received his bag after his first throw, Number 3 begins. This continues untilall the players in the beanbag line are throwing, each beginning as soon as his right-hand neighbor has made his first play. Keep score of the number of times each side drops a bag. When the time limit has expired, the side that has dropped the fewer bags wins.
