How to Play  
First player picks where he wants to shoot the ball. 
If he makes the basket the next player must shoot the ball from the same spot. 
If he misses the basket then the second player shoots from wherever he wants. 
If the first player makes the basket, but the second player misses - then the second player receives a letter in the word HORSE. 
With each missed shot - only after the player before them makes a shot - players add a letter. 
When they have spelled HORSE they are out of the game.
