How To Play:
All players "the soldiers" form one circle - facing the
center. Teacher designates one player to represent the ENEMY and is
given a beanbag.
The ENEMY walks or runs around the outside of the circle (behind the
other players) and drops the beanbag behind one of them. This
player now quickly goes to the center of the circle with the beanbag
while the ENEMY tries to run around the circle and into the center
through the space left open by the player who is now standing in the
center of the circle.
While the ENEMY is running around the circle, the player in the middle
tosses the beanbag to another player that is in the circle. After
intercepting the beanbag, this player can now run through the
center of the circle to fill in the gap left by the first player - and
the 1st player fills in the gap of the one that caught the
beanbag. (The two players are switching places that they originally
held in the circle.) If both of the gaps are filled in by the players by
the time the ENEMY gets to the first gap, the Enemy is deemed unable
to enter into the circle. THE ENEMY WILL BE DEFEATED! If the ENEMY
does make it through the gap - he receives another attempt or may
choose another player to take his place as the ENEMY.
Play continues as long as time allows.
