Play Horse

WHAT: H.O.R.S.E. is one of the most popular and easiest basketball games to play. To play horse, no defense involved, just a simple shooting game. Other shorter or longer words can be substituted.

HOW: One player shoots a shot from anywhere on the court; if he makes it, the other player must shoot and make the same shot. If she misses, she gets a letter “H.” If the first player misses, the second player gets to shoot and so on. Once a player gets to H.O.R.S.E., they get eliminated until there’s one player remaining.

HOW MANY: 2+ ppl

SKILLS: shooting, crazy shots
