Dodgeball Bingo

Not dodgeball AND bingo -- it's both at once!
  [vote for,

Dodgeball Bingo is a magical* mix-up of the two of American's most beloved pasttimes. Five players per team are marked with the letters "B," "I," "N," "G," and "O" on their jersey fronts, and each has a different bingo card attached to their back. A 6th players is the Dauber, who keeps track of each team's score. Six balls are numbered "1" through "6." Players grab balls and fire them at opponents, and when (for example) the number "4" ball hits the opposing team's "G" players, the throwing team's Daubers runs to each player and marks any G-4 squares on their bingo cards. Two referrees and a judge help announce squares earned.

* "Relentlessly chaotic" may be a more suitable adjective.

       [+] Made me laugh, though Bingo is not really one of America's favorite pasttimes! (neither is Dodgeball for that matter) but I like the mix.

       4 ball hits G dauber marks all G6, huh!?

       // "Relentlessly chaotic" //   

       I finished high school at a non-curricular school where the director felt that certain 'team activities' enabled discriminatory victimization, so to replace dodgeball (#1 on his hit list) he created 'deathball': 1 baseball diamond, x no. of players, x(2) no. of assorted sports balls (not all nerf!), and no teams.   

       I like this one too.
