  • A brief summary of rules of the game are as follows
  • - Grow at least three extra legs. You won't need them, but it keeps the crowds amused
  • - Find one good player and clone him off a few times. This saves an enormous amount of tedious selection and training
  • Put your team and the opposing team ina large field and build a high wall round them
  • The reason for this is that, though the game is a major spectator sport, the frustration experienced by the audience at not actually being able to see what's going on leads them to imagine that it's a lot more exciting than it actually is
  • -Throw lots of assorted items of sporting equipment over the walls for the players. Anything will do - cricket bats, basecube bats, tennis guns, skis, anything you can get a good swing with
  • -The players should now lay about themselves for all they are worth with whatever they find to hand. Whenever a player scores a 'hit' on another player, he should immediately run away and apologize from a safe distance
  • Apologies should be concise, sincere and, for maximum clarity and points, delivered through a megaphone
  • -The winning team shall be the first team that wins
