Players run around the middle of the pitch trying to catch a ball and then touch their opponent.
 
Attention
Au début de partie, il faut sortir du centre du terrain pour lancer le ballon sur un adversaire, ensuite vous pouvez lancer d’où bon vous semble tant que vous restez dans votre camp.
 
The aim of the game is to hit your opponents with a ball. The player who is hit goes to "Prison" on the side of his camp. 
 
If you catch a ball in flight, you eliminate the player who threw it to you and the 1st player eliminated from your team returns to the pitch.
 
A ball that bounces before touching a player does not count.
