-Setting Up:

  • Place a doomed target.

  • Place the four bean bags with the support straps about 10 paces away from the dome.

  • Teams of 6-10 players hold the ends of the straps.


  • On the leader’s signal to begin players pull on the straps to lift the doweled Velcro and pick up the bean bag at the edge of the velcro (if players get too much Velcro it is too difficult to drop).

  • When they reach the target dome players attempt to wiggle the bean bag off and into the dome.
