There are 2 equal teams, each team has 3 “Lifesavers/Jedi”, and a large area divided in half (gym or giant room is best). The goal of the game is to knock out the opposing team’s Jedi. During the game, the students cannot cross the dividing line. I like to use a giant rope, but tape or polyspots work well too. If students are hit by a ball, or their thrown ball is caught they must sit down where they are. Don’t let them lay down, or they’ll probably be run over. The Jedi are able to bring people “back to life” with their Lifesaver (I know, it goes totally against what a Lightsaber actually does) by tagging their teammates on their shoulders. I like to use short cut pieces of the floating noodles for a swimming pool as a tagging instrument.
If a student is hit in the face or head by a ball, they are not out and whoever threw it must sit down. If a ball bounces off the ground, and then hits a student they are still in play (you may even add the rule is it hits you at all even after bouncing off the floor or walls then you're out). Students who are running around hitting others with the noodle in a violent way are immediately taken out of the game as a disciplinary action. If a student crosses the dividing line for any reason, they must sit down on their side. Students sitting down may not pick up or throw balls. The game starts with everyone, except Jedi, standing and ready to go in the back of each divided section.
