The rules of the ball point game are simple: To score a point, everyone in the group must touch the ball once. The ball must have "air time" when the ball is not touching any player. No one may pass the ball to their immediate neighbor. The objective is to score as many points as possible in 2 minutes. The team gets several attempts to improve their score, with a retrospective between each attempt.
If the team is 4 people or less, these rules don't work. The immediate neighbor rule can't be satisfied with 3 people and with 4 people, that rule produces two closed loops.
I modified the game as follows:
- The restriction on passes to your neighbor was removed
- Each player must touch the ball twice, once with the left hand, once with the right.
- A player may not pass the ball to himself
- The rest is unchanged.
How did it work: Here is the team in action on their final attempt:
