Throwing two boomerangs. Use one boomerang with a longer flight and longer hover, and one with a shorter flight and shorter hover. Hold both boomerangs in one hand and throw... yes, both at the same time. The one with the most catches wins!! Recommended 'Rangs: Tri-Blader with Everest or Adirondack (Tri-Blader on top).
Just like it sounds. Go for some trick catches... don't drop!! Recommended 'Rangs: Typhoon or Condor Comp.
Just like pig or horse from basketball. Each thrower has to duplicate the previous catch (unless it's a drop). Miss a catch, get a letter... BOOM and you're gone!! Last one throwing wins.
