Another variant of the game dodgeball
). It has all the same rules as regular dodgeball, except a changed rule for when players get out and in.
Players get out the same ways as usual. 1. Get hit by a ball. 3. Hit someone in the head with a ball. 3. Someone on the opposing team catches your ball. And 4. Steps out of bounds.
In Civil War Dodgeball, when someone gets out, they have to go up to the half court line and lie down. To get freed, they have to be dragged back by a teammate past a assigned line, usually the back court line. If the player is dragged back that far, they are back in. However, players dragging teammates are very prone to getting hit by dodgeballs, and often do. Depending on House Rules
, if the player dragging their teammate back is hit, that "dragger" has to go to the half court line and be dragged back. In some verision, the person who was being dragged has to go back to the halfcourt line, and in others, the the person who is being dragged stays where they last were when the "dragger" gets out.
Some people have multiple people go up and drag a teammate back to the line. With these extra people, they can drag their teammate back extra fast.
Also, in another verision of this verision of dodgeball, people lie down where they are hit and have to be dragged back to the line, which is usually the back court line.
I got out in Civil War Dodgeball yesterday. Chavez was dragging me back when he got hit. Then Rachael tried to drag me back. She got hit. Then Vincent tried to drag me back. He got hit. Finally, Louis managed to drag me back. Back "alive" and in the game, I avenged Chavez, Rachael, and Vincent and then dragged them back so they were back "alive."
