Walk this way

This five-minute game can last 10 minutes if you need it to. Both teams are playing each other at the same time, the players have to play rock scissors paper instead, and walking heel-toe-heel-toe is not as easy as it sounds!

  1. Setup: Place the bases in a baseball diamond configuration.
  2. Choose two teams and have both line up at home. Before play starts, decide which team will walk clockwise and which will go counterclockwise.
  3. On the count of three, one player from each team sets off around the bases, walking heel-toe — one foot placed directly in front of the other — as quickly as that strange gait allows.
  4. When the two walking players meet on the diamond, they stop and play a quick game of rock, paper, scissors. The winner continues around the bases, while the other player turns around and runs home.
  5. The next player in his team then starts walking heel-toe around the bases to head off the advancing opponent and try to stop him with rock, paper, scissors. When a walker makes it home, her team wins a point and two new players come up to “bat.”
