Dodge, Duck, Dip, Dive, Dodge


Over the past couple of weeks, I have supplied you with many games to cure your dorm boredom. From hallway soccer to mud football, and even nerf wars! But I have one more in store for you fun seeking college students and I have most certainly saved the best for last, Dodgeball! Dodgeball is an extremely fast paced game where you try and hit other players with balls while you yourself are trying to avoid being hit. Every Thursday night in the Rec Gym, people play dodgeball from 11 till whenever and it is a blast. I encourage anyone to come out and play, it truly is a blast.

How to play:
  • Go to the Rec Gym at 11 on Thursday night. Bring Friends!
  • Split up into 2 even teams. Each team must start out with the same number of balls.
  • Someone says, "1,2,3 Dodgeball!" and the game begins.
  • There are white lines set up on the court. You must remain inside the white lines in order to get someone on the opposite team out. There also is a white line in the middle of the court which you cannot cross or else you are out.
  • To get someone out, either hit them with a ball if you throw it from inside the white lines, or if you catch a ball that has been thrown by someone on the other team while inside the white lines.
  • Once hit or caught out, you must stand on the side of the court in a line with your team in the order that you got out.
  • If someone on your team catches a ball while inside the white lines, then the first person in line goes back into the game.
  • The game ends once every player on a team is out.
Tips:
  • "If you're going to become true dodgeballers, then you've got to learn the five d's of dodgeball: dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge!" says Patches O'Houlihan from the movie Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story.
  • Practice, you will only get better by practicing, which is easy since they have dodgeball going on every week.
I hope that by reading my blog you will always have something to do on Eastern University's extremely lively campus.

Enjoy and Have Fun!
