Guard the Castle



Equipment: A ball and a bowling pin or pylon

Players: 3


This game is similar to Monkey in the Middle.



Have a player go in the middle between the 2 other players that are spaced apart. They should stand a bowling pin in the middle. The two other players pass and roll the ball back and forth between each other trying to knock over the pin. The Guard in the middle tries to prevent them from doing so, however the Guard may not touch or hold the pin. You may need to define a boundary so the players don't move too close to the pin. If a player knocks over the pin, they switch places with the person in the middle and become the new Guard.
