Ultimate Rugby

Get two teams of friends together with either a football or a real rugby ball.  The rules are you can’t run if you have your hands on the ball, all passes have to be underhand, defense must count to ten (normal counting, no counting to ten in two seconds) before rushing the Quarterback, if the ball hits the ground its a turnover to the other team. The Quarterback can run to evade the people rushing in, but can not go past the line where the ball was snapped.  Also to make a try (one point) you must go to the end zone and touch the ball to the floor. http://www.worldrugbyshop.com/departments-balls.html

Crush The Carrier

This is a mix of football and straight mayhem.  This game can be very fun if you have a bunch of friends and a big field.  The main rule is that if you have the ball run from one side of the field to the other as many times as you can without getting wrecked.  For every time you make it across you gain one point.  When the carrier gets tackled he must stop were he is, throw the ball straight up into the air to give every player a fair chance to run the ball and get points.  If that’s you catching the ball….RUN!!!!!! Its every person on the field against the the one who is running with the ball, no teams.  You can tweak the rules so you can play teams, have the teams block for their teammate who is carrying the ball.  http://www.wilson.com/en-us/football/footballs/

Late Night Bowling

A really good way to have some good times with all your friends is to go to the closest bowling lanes.  Having fun bowling makes a lot of good memories.  I suggest putting up the bumpers so you don’t get gutter balls.  Also the bumpers come in handy so you and your friends can act dumb and do some crazy throws, to make a laugh.  Hopefully your local bowling place has neon lights that light up the lanes after dark.  I don’t know why, but going when they have the lights on always makes the night better.  Some places have fluorescent bowling balls that will light up when the neon lights shine onto the ball.
