By Dan Beard

As in the preceding game, Hand Up,  the ball is thrown against the House while all the players group themselves around the giver. As soon as the latter sends his ball against the house he shouts the name of one of his playmates who must catch the ball on the rebound. If he misses or drops the ball the other boys scatter in every direction, but come to a halt when he picks up the ball and cries, " Stand!" He then selects a victim and throws the ball at him. If he hits the boy aimed at, the latter throws the ball against the house, and the game goes on, but if he misses he must stand against the wall with head down and allow each of the other players to have one throw at him with the ball from a distance of ten paces.
