Circle Dodgeball

Players stand in a circle and throw one ball to eliminate other players.
Ball (preferably large and soft)
How To Play
Players stand in a circle. One player starts with the ball and throws it at another player. Player must catch it and throw it at another.

If the ball touches a player and they do not catch it, that player is eliminated. If a player throws it and it does not hit a player, the thrower is eliminated.

Players must throw the ball with two hands and may not raise it above their head to throw.

Players may not move their feet (other than to make the circle smaller when a player is eliminated).

Players may not throw the ball at the person directly beside them (unless there are 4 players or fewer remaining).
