The players form a large circle facing inwards. Each player is given a number. One player stands in the center keeping the broom upright by resting the palm of his hand on the top. The player in the center calls out a number and removes his hand. The player whose number is called tries to catch the broom before it hits the ground. If that player manages to catch it they take their place in the center, otherwise the original player stays in the center. The stick should only be balanced upright and hot held. They must just remove their hand and not push the stick in any way.
