State the name of your game and why you chose it.

Sarah:  The name of our game is Kick the Can.  I chose it because it sounded like a cool game and I had never heard about it until now.

List the countries where it is played and its origin.

It is played in the city and it is so old that it was probably played by my grandfather.

Describe how your game is played. State the object of the game. Clearly describe the rules.

List the equipment needed.

Make recommendations for what type of athlete would enjoy playing this game. What skills does it demand?

Sarah:  I recommend this game to any athlete that has free time, has a big group of friends and is looking for a fun game to play.  This is a fun, simple and quick game to play.  It doesn't require many materials.
