`500`

This game needs a couple of kids and a ball (both a football or a baseball
are common).

One person is the thrower, and everyone else clusters about throwing
distance away from the thrower. The thrower toss the ball in the air towards
everyone else and annouces a number between 50 and 500, like so: "I've
got 200 up for grabs". If a kid catches it they get as many points as the
thrower yelled. If someone drops it though, they lose the same number of
points (negative score are possible).

The first person to get 500 points wins and become the thrower for the
next game.

**OR**

The baseball was batted and there was a set number of points for each type
of hit. A "grounder" was 25, a line drive on the fly was 50 and anything
of the order of a pop fly was 100.

###
OR

One person is the thrower, and everyone else clusters about throwing distance
away from the thrower. The ball is then thrown (or kicked) towards
the group. If caught on the fly, it is worth 100 points; after the
first bounce: 75, second bounce: 50, and after the third bounce: 25.
First person to 500 becomes the thrower (or kicker) for the next round.
