Blow Ping-Pong

A good game for those in the family with lots of puff.

You’ll need:
Two teams
A large table
A ping-pong ball
Straws (though you can play without them)

Divide the players into two teams, and stand them at opposite sides of a long table. Place the ping-pong ball in the centre of the table and draw an imaginary line half way along the length of the table. At a signal, teams try to blow (no touching allowed) the ping-pong ball to the floor on their opponent’s side of the table to score ten points. If the ball goes off the end of the table, teams have to agree which team's half it was in. If you touch the ball or the table with your hands, 10 points are deducted from your team's score. Winners are first team to reach 100.
