Set up five target areas with skipping ropes.
Players must stand behind the throwing line.
Players attempt to score the highest number of points by throwing a beanbag into the target areas (players alternate taking turns throwing the beanbag).
After each player has made five throws, players then go collect their beanbags, add up their points, and proceed to find a new player who they can challenge.
