Protect the Castle!

Game Description: 
Protect your castle and try to conquer the other kingdoms. This is a great game that works on throwing, catching, striking, tracking and blocking. All you really need is blocks and dodge balls.
Protect your castle and try to conquer the other kingdoms!
Game Rules: 
The group will be divided into four teams within a large playing area. This playing area will be divided into four equal kingdoms. Each team will be given a kingdom and several foam blocks to build their tower. A large hula hoop will be placed over the tower to prevent any close blocking. Once the towers are set up the teams will try to conquer the other kingdoms by knocking their castles over with cannon balls (dodge balls). If a team's castle is completely knocked over then they will have to join the team that knocked their castle over. The game ends when there is only one team remaining.
Adaptations (optional): 
If you have access to gym mats, elevate your tower by building it on top of a mat. This will change the type of throw needed to destroy the castle. Put down some cones or poly dots and appoint one person from each team to be the royal guard. This person will be the only team member allowed within the cones or poly dots to protect the castle.
