Play Rules

A winning hero gets the votes with hands on her shoulder. And yes, men, woman en children can play it mixed!

How ‘winners’ are decided.

Players take pictures of the winners, heroes, buddha and winning team. Watch the mood of those that ‘lost’ towards the ones who celebrate ‘winning’ and titles. You may take pictures of the winners and place these on the internet, Switchball Facebook group. Hero in a heroic pose. Buddha with hands in a Mudra. Fool as happy as possible. Teams as they like.
