The players stand in two parallel lines facing to the front with about five feet distance between the lines and considerable distance between each two players in a line so that the runners may have space to run between them. The head player of one line is a quarterback and the head player of the opposite line a defender. At a signal, the quarterback starts to run winding in and out from one side to the other of his line until he reaches the bottom when he turns and comes up the opposite line. The quarterback does not need to run between each two players but may skip any number that he wishes and choose his own track. The defender must follow in exactly the same trail and should he make a mistake to go back to the point at which he diverged from the path of the quarterback. If the quarterback succeeds in getting back to the head of the second line without being caught he is considered to have escaped and takes his place at the foot of his own line. Should he be caught by the defender he changes places with the defender going to the foot of the quarterback’s line and the quarterback taking the defender’s original place at the head of his line. The second player in the quarterback’s line who should have moved up to the front to keep the lines even is then quarterback for the next chase.

Next, use duct tape to mount your “target drawing” on to a wall or a fence, so it will be able to withstand the impact of a thrown football.  Each player gets to throw five passes at the target and the player with the most points at the end of the game wins.
