Queimada

Queimada, the Portuguese word for "burned," is a popular game similar to dodgeball that is played on a wide, open field.

@ Club:cones 

 

@Home:Use items for boundaries… 

To play, form two even teams and divide the players on each half of the field, similar to how you would in "capture the flag" or dodgeball. At each end of the field mark an area called the "cemetery" and place one player from each side inside their team's cemetery. The game begins when one of the players in the cemetery launches a ball to the other side of the field. Members of the opposing team try to catch the ball and throw it at a player on the side from which the ball was launched. If a ball strikes a player, he is "burnt" and must spend the remainder of the game in the cemetery. The game finishes when all of the players on one side are "burnt." 

Stay Tuned....
