Guard the castle group game

Have one player go in the middle between the two 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 stop the ball from hitting the pin, however the Guard may not touch or hold the pin. You may need to define a distance or boundary from the pin for the other players so they don't throw from 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 for the next round. This game can be played with subs if you have more players.
