Team 1 throws balls at team 2. If a player on team 2 is hit below the shoulders, they are out. If a player on team 2 catches the ball in the air but not after a bounce, they receive a free 'life'. Then, if they are hit again, the free life is used up but the player is not out. A player may not receive more than three free lives. However, the fourth, fifth, etc. time a player catches the ball, they may bring a player who is out on their team back into the game. After all players of team 2 are out, the teams switch places.
