This game is a lot like “3 Flies Up” and is a great adaptation of playground space.


Materials: Either a large slanted roof or a tall (8 feet or higher) wall. One ball that can be caught barehanded.

Area: Enough to accommodate as many players who wish to play.

Object: To catch the ball when it rolls off the roof.

How To Play: This game has no winners, no losers and no formal point system. A ball is thrown up on a slanted roof, high enough to make the catching crowd wonder where it might fall yet not so high that it will go over the other side of the roof. When the ball rolls back down, everyone tries to catch it. Whoever catches it gets to throw it back up on the roof. 

You can add your own scoring system to this game if you need a way to entice people to play.
