Pithu garam (pithu)

Hi there PTL memebers. today i want to to tell you about a game Pithu garam (pithu).

How to play:
Divide the players into two teams. Let there be team A and team B.
Each player in team A takes their turn in breaking the tower from a certain distance using a tennis ball.
A player from team B is assigned to catch the ball after it gets thrown by team A. Rest of team B become fielders.
When a player from team A succeeds in breaking the tower, the team’s next aim becomes to rebuild the tower while everyone in team B tries to get all the players out in team A by hitting them with the tennis ball.
If team B succeeds in getting all the players out from team A before the tower is rebuilt then they have defended a pittu.
But if team B fails to do so then team A gets a pittu and they carry on with their turn in breaking the tower.
Once everyone in team A has had their turn the teams swap the roles.
After both teams have defended the team with most number of pittu(s) wins

RULES:
Each player gets three tries for attempting to break the tower.
If a team is successful in getting a pittu, the player which broke the tower gets an additional three tries.
If a player successfully breaks the tower but a player from the opposite team catches the ball before it hits the ground, then the attacking player is deprived of his remaining tries.
When a player from defending team picks up a tennis ball they may not move from that position till they have thrown the ball away.
