A hackysack is a small, usually woven fabric ball with some kind of filling that makes it soft and flexible.
The game of hackysack is usually played by standing in a circle and taking turns kicking the ball with one's feet/legs. The ball is passed to other people in the circle, and the idea is for everyone to kick it without the ball touching the ground. Because hackysack players are often found at varying skill levels, in practice this is more challenging than it sounds unless you have an experienced group of people playing.
Other variations of this game can be found as well.
Hackysack tends to be identified with stoners, hippies or wanna-be hippies, and the like, but in reality these stereotypical groups are not the only people that play it. If you've got time to kill, it can be a fun game for anyone.
