Party Game Central



A sports game where you catch the ball to increase your points to 500!

Game type:

Active. A lot of movement may be required.


4 or more players


Ball (football or baseball) and possibly a bat


This game needs at least four players and a ball (football or baseball). One person is the thrower, and everyone else stands as a group about throwing distance away from the thrower. The thrower toss the ball in the air towards everyone else and announces a number between 50 and 500 in increments of 50 (50,100,150,200 etc.). So for example the thrower might throw the ball and shout "300 points for the catch!". If a player catches it, they get to keep the points shouted by the thrower. If someone drops it though, they lose the same number of points (negative scores are possible). The first person to get 500 points wins and become the thrower for the next game.


A baseball is batted and there was a set number of points for each type of hit. A "grounder" is 25, a line drive on the fly is 50 and a pop fly is 100.

In another variation, one person is the thrower, and everyone else clusters about throwing distance away from the thrower. The ball is then thrown (or kicked) towards the group. If caught on the fly, it is worth 100 points; after the first bounce: 75, second bounce: 50, and after the third bounce: 25. First person to 500 becomes the thrower (or kicker) for the next round.
