  1. This is very similiar to a brazilian game called “Queimada”…which is very popular there…

  2. Hello,
    Looks like a great game! Question is this………..the opposing players who are out and go to the baseline of the opposite team………….do they throw at the team in front of them from that close of range? Seems like it would be easy to hit people since you’re on their side of the court. Especially since most of the opposing team will have their back to the baseline players from the other team. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Pete

    • Hey pete i had the kids that were out and on the baseline throw non-dominant over hand. That made it a little harder and more safe

  3. Hey Pete,

    Yes the players from the baseline can throw and hence why Battleball is a 360 degree game and the spot you stand on the court becomes tactical and dependent upon where the balls are at the time.

  4. When out you can throw balls to hit opponents but you remain out, correct?
