Protect the President
Players again stand in a large circle with two people in

the middle. One person in the middle is the President, the other is the Bodyguard. Those standing in the circle try to hit the president with the soft ball. The bodyguard may do anything to block the ball with his body: jump, squat, dive, etc. If the ball touches the President at any time [any part of the body, not just below the knees], the person who threw the ball (or the last person to touch it) then becomes the Bodyguard, the Bodyguard becomes the President, and the President rejoins the circle. What makes this exciting is that from the moment the President is hit, the new President is vulnerable as the transition is instantaneous. The new bodyguard must be fast at getting into the circle to defend him or her. This sometimes makes Presidential Turnover pretty quick, but it's exciting. This game is exhausting, especially if the people in the middle are good.

Mummy Relay
Each team selects one of its members. These people stand at the opposite end of the room with at least 3-4 feet of space between them. Give the roll of toilet paper to the first player of each team. On “go!” they must run to their team mate standing across the room and proceed to wrap them in toilet paper (like a mummy). After 5 times around they must put the roll down and run back to tag the next person in line. This goes on until the first team manages to finish their roll and run back to the line!
