Shinty

A Scottish game involving two teams, bent sticks and a ball. A character building game. Both teams' members are given a bent stick each. The NCO IC Sadism tosses a ball into the crowd. The two teams using the sticks are meant to move the ball down to the opposing goal area. The ball gets hit once, flies in the air and strikes a member of the opposing team on the head. Stick-to-stick combat ensues.

Sometimes you didn't even bother with a ball. NCO IC Sadism would just shout "Kill!".
