To play this game, children form two teams. Each team has a field, and there’s an imaginary place called the cemetery. One person from each starts in the cemetery, so he’s dead. The rest of the team starts in the field. The person who is at the cemetery always starts the game by throwing a ball to the opposite side where his partners are. The living people from this team have to catch the ball and throw it against the other team. If someone from the opposite team touches the ball, he is burnt, so he is dead. The "dead ones" go to the cemetery, and the game finishes when every living person from one team dies.
