[Also called "Scrag"]

The game is played with a large ball (basketball, football, soccerball, etc.). One person carries the ball toward some randomly chosen goal (a tree, bench, fence, little brother). All other players assault (maul) the ball carrier attempting to sieze control of the ball. Chases, tackles, intimidation, trickery are all fair game. Once the ball has changed hands, the new ball carrier is the target. As far as I know, no goal has ever been attained; the game is played until all are exhausted or someone is injured.
