The game is usually played with two sticks per person and one hoop for the group, but we tend to challenge ourselves and will sometimes add extra hoops to the mix.

There are some pretty embarrassing videos of us playing this, but for now you will have to be content with pictures.

I don't know if you can really tell from these pictures, but this game was a ton of fun. And best of all, it didn't require much beyond a hard floor (for stomping), a handkerchief (we used a clean napkin from lunch), and a sense of adventure. I look forward to playing again!
