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

We chose Roman Ball because it sounded interesting and different from anything else we've played.  It's a simple game but sounds fun and you don't need much equipment.

List the countries where it is played and its origin.

You can probably guess that Roman Ball is from Rome and that is where it is mainly played.  The game was first played in ancient Rome.

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?

Lee:  If you play basketball or enjoy running I think you will love this game.   You can play Roman Ball whenever you can draw a couple of circles and have a rubber ball so you can play it anywhere. 

What are your feelings about this game? Did you enjoy playing it? Would you recommend it?

Lee:  I like this game because the rules are simple and you can play it anywhere at anytime.
