Brannboll is a popular Scandinavian informal bat and ball team game which is very similar to rounders and baseball. As Brannboll is played without governance from a national body there are many local variations to the rules.
In contrast to baseball and cricket, there is no pitcher/bowler. The batsman himself throws or bounces the ball and then hits it with his bat. When the batsman successfully hits the ball, they drop the bat and runs around the four bases, while the players in the catching team catch and throw the ball back to the designated catcher positioned by the forth (out) base. Who shouts OUT as soon as he has both the ball and contact with the base, ending the batting round.
If a player from the batting team is caught between two bases at the end of the batting round they move back to the first base and the catching team scores a point. If a batsman is unsuccessful at batting after three attempts, they move to the first base and will run when the next batsman bats a valid hit. There are no restrictions on the number of players at each base. If all players on the batting team fail to reach the fourth base, the innings finishes and the teams swoop roles.
