Three Step

Group Size: 5 or more. Equipment: A large enclosed area, and 3 soft balls (nerf
or foam balls work best). Goal: To eliminate all the other players, by hitting them below the
waist with the balls. Play: When someone is hit they must immediately sit down where they are
and can not move from that spot. However, if a ball comes where they can catch it, they attempt
to hit one of the players who are still standing, if that person is hit (below the waist). The player
standing sits and the one who was down gets up again. The last person left standing is the winner.
General rules: No more than three steps may be taken while holding a ball. If someone is hit
in the head, that person is up while the person throwing the ball must sit immediately. If the balls
are being held, the game leader may loudly count to 5. If a ball is not active during that time, all
those who are standing must sit immediately and those who were sitting stand and begin playing
