BeanBag Games Pass And Toss Relay Single Line

( BeanBag, Choreographed, Relay Race )

The players stand in two or more even ranks facing sideways. The players at either end step one long pace forward of the ranks to the points marked 1 and 10 respectively as they are to catch the bag tossed from some other player. Player Number One has a bag and at the signal for starting runs toward the rear and as he runs tosses the bag to Number Ten. The line immediately moves forward one place Number Two stepping into the place vacated by Number One. As soon as Number Ten has caught the bag he takes his place in line with the rank and passes the bag to his next neighbor Number Nine. The bag is then passed rapidly up the line until it is received by Number Three who tosses it to Number Two. Number Two in his turn as soon as he receives the bag dashes for the rear tossing the bag as he goes to the player standing at 10 who in this instance will be Number One. The line again moves up Number Three now stepping out to the place marked 1.

This play is continued until Number One is back in his original position. The rank which first gets the bag around to Number One after he returns to his original position wins the game. Number One should hold the bag up at arms length as soon as he gets it as a signal that his rank has completed its play. As this feature adds much to the facility with which an umpire may judge of the winning rank it may well be a required part of the play the rank winning whose Number One is first to raise aloft his bag.

It adds much to the interest of the game to have a general umpire and scorekeeper who shall decide which is the winning line and post the score where the players may see it.
