Two rolled up newspapers, paper to maintain scores, a league, or knockout tournament details. Two blindfolds.
How to play:
Two players (Moriarty and Holmes) are chosen and blindfolded
They are placed three feet from each other.
Holmes starts and says "Are you there, Moriarty?"
The other replies "Yes, Holmes, I am here."
Holmes can then attempt to hit Moriarty over the head with his newspaper.
If he succeeds he wins.
If he misses Moriarty can say "Are you there Holmes?"
