Gotcha! is another of those gym games that can eat up hours of an afternoon if you're not careful. Read on to learn how to play Gotcha!
Things You'll Need
- A gym
- 20 or so participants
- One beanbag for every two participants
Split the participants into two equal teams, based on age, strength, maturity, skill and so on. Create a clear dividing line in the gym that the participants may not cross.
Have each team line up against the far walls of the gym, opposite of the dividing line. Set all the bean bags out on the playing surface, and be sure to give each team an equal number.
Blow a whistle to start the game. The players may now run out onto the playing surface to retrieve the bean bags. At this point, they want to throw them so they'll slide across the gym quickly to the other team's players. If a player crosses the middle line into enemy territory, they are temporarily knocked out of the game.
If a player is hit (preferably in the foot) by a bean bag, they must retreat to the wall on the side of the gym. Each team will use the same wall (it will run perpendicular to the dividing line) but they must stay on their own side. They must stand in line in the order they were knocked out of the game. A player may re-enter the game when a player on the opposite team is hit.
A team wins when all the players on the other team have been knocked out.
