An active game for junior youth
How To Play Asteroids
Lots of soft squishy balls that can be thrown at one another without too much pain!
About 1 per person is good, but more will work too!
This is a great game that is high energy, and can give kids (and leaders) an opportunity to vent their frustration!
Depending on numbers of balls and players, each player is issued with a ball at the start of the game. The object is to get other people out by hitting them with the ball (or asteroid). If they are hit, they must sit down where they were hit and "explode" by throwing all of their balls around the room immediately.
If a player catches another persons ball, they are out and have to sit down and explode all of their balls.
A player can come back in if while seated a ball comes near them and they pick it up.
You can get people back in, perhaps who have been out for a while by rolling a ball in their path.
To spice it up a bit, place objects in the room like tables tilted sideways, whiteboards, anything that can be used as a barrier.
