Keramidakia

How is it played? (Rules)

There are two teams standing in lines in front of each other and the kerchief is laying in the middle. Every member of a team has his own number (1,2,3 …). We need an umpire who shouts a number e.g. 2 and the players who has that number have to run and baffle the kerchief towards the line of their team. It is not allowed to grab and run back with the kerchief, the players are only allowed to throw or hit the kerchief in the air which is a really difficult thing to do. After some rounds the umpire can make it more complicated by shouting numbers with more digits e.g. 478 which means that all the players with the number of 4, 7 and 8 has to run for the kerchief and in this situation they can pass and use the advantages of teamwork.
