Searching for basketball games ...

Sorry for the bombardment of replies, the search engine I normally use is google.com

Not sure what good keywords to use to find these games ... maybe try something like "basketball practice game". Hope that helps.

Arrow Rules for 21

The game of 21 is simple. Follow these base rules and if you wish have some fun by mixing them up.

1. Foulshots are worth 1 point each
2. After a rebound a basket is worth 2 points
3. If a player makes 3 consecutive foulshots he must check the ball to another player and try to score against him. This shot if made will be worth 2 points and foulshots will continue.
4. A rule called "dynamite" or some call "eraseies" permits a player to erase antoher players score by rebounding and scoring without your feet on the ground. Its a quick put back of the ball after a missed shot.(optnl)
5. If a player gets 22 because of the way in which they've scored, the score gets pushed back to 11 0r 15 (optnl)
6. There are also specific rules about free throws and with the last shot after a player has reached 21(will discuss later). With free throws if an airball is shot the player shooting gets the ball back until he hits the rim or makes the shot. Sometimes if a player wishes to miss on purpose he tries to hit the rim hard with the ball to avoid a re-shot.
7. If a player reaches 21 a final shot if requierd to seal the victory. The shot is from the top of the 3 point line of from a longer distance then the foul shot. you can use dynamite or erasies on this shot against the shooter. That means the same rules about the return of an air-ball are in effect. The player must hit rim or make the shot. If a player misses the shot off the rim he will be returned to a score of 11 or 15 (optnl). Finally if 21 if reached by a pleyer 3 times he wins the game (optnl)

Enjoy this game and email me with any questions- HAVE FUN!!!

In Nevada, we play 21 for $, but our rules are a bit different.

If you go over 21 you goback to 11.
This is the way we played here in the northeast. We also had a put back option in that if you got a rebound while in the air and the put back went in, you got the two points and the shooter was reset back to zero.
EG
I grew up in the northeast, and lived in Hawaii for 20+ years (where we got lots of visiting NBA and NFL players post season) and we played the top version in both places.
Added variations: no OOB for anyone. You could even shoot from OOB. Scoring was like "real" hoop 3's, 2's, and 1's (FT). If you miss a FT for 21 you go back to 11, if you mahe a three at 19 and go over 21, back to 11.

I'm out west now and they sometimes play the "tip in" go
back to zero rule, but your "safe" after you reach 12. Also,
they have another 21 game: shoot a three and a layup (layup is shot off the "three" rebound or makes). Made "threes" count as 2, layups as 1. Consecutive made shots go into the pot. If you miss you get whatever is in that pot for that type of shot. When you get to 21 you lose. So, lets say three players all make their "threes" and layups. "On top" 3x2=6, down low (layups) 3x1=3. 4th shooter misses his three, but makes his layup: he gets the 6 from "on top". On top is set again to zero, and down low now has 4 in the pot. The next player misses his layup so he gets the 4 "down low". A little confusing? Yeah, and usually played as a cool down game, so keeping score can be tricky if you're tired.
