Its best to play outdoors in an open area.
Give everyone a number (1-however many players there are). Have a leader throw a ball in the air and say one of the numbers that was given, that person has to retrieve the ball, while that person is getting the ball, everyone else runs in the other direction, once the person gets the ball and says "spud" no one can move (including the person who's number got called) then (whiteout moving) the person throws the ball at someone, if it hits them, they have a 'letter' (S) they can try and doge the ball by ducking or leaning, but they can't pickup their feet.
The ball can hit more than one person per round. Then the leader throws the ball in the air, calls out a different number and the whole thing start again. If you get hit again then you have SP, then SPU, then SPUD and you're out.
This is loads of fun when you have 10-20 people playing, but however many work.
