    Also a children's game played when I was young. Kick the Bucket was a large-scale game which took a lot of organising and therefore almost never happened. I can't remember the exact rules, but it involved one kid kicking a light metal bucket with as much force as possible off the top of a very steep, wooded hill, and ten or twenty others then charging pell-mell down through the trees.
