Live Oak Park (LOP) Activity: SPUD
The game SPUD is a combination of HORSE and Dodgeball.

  1. Choose one player to be "it".
  2. “It” must give each player a number, including themselves. Try to make the numbers within a certain range, usually 1 to 10. If you have at least 8 players, use 1 through 12.
  3. The person who is "it" starts with the ball, while other players circle around him/her.
  4. "It" must then shout out a number while throwing the ball in the air.
  5. All players, including "it," must run away from the ball but, if your number is called, you must catch the ball and say, "Spud!" When you say "spud," everyone must freeze.
  6. If you are the player with the ball, take three giant steps towards any player and throw it at that player.
  7. If you miss, or the player catches the ball, you get an "S". If the player gets hit, he/she gets an "S," and the player that he/she hits (or misses) is the next thrower.
  8. If someone shouts a number that nobody has, this is called a "ghost number." If a ghost number is called, everyone must rush up to the ball and touch it. The last player to do so gets a letter.
  9. For each letter a player gets, spell out S-P-U-D. If you spell out S-P-U-D you are out of the game. The last player standing is the winner
