Hacky Sack (Name trademarked by Wham-O) is both the name we generally use and the game of kicking (using any part of the body except your hands and forearms) a footbag from one person to another, with the aim to keep the footbag in the air. In short: kick the bag, hope everyone in the circle kicks the bag (called a hacky), if not, pick it up and try again. This is the ultimate time killer game.

Footbags’s being their small and versatile selves are easy to keep in your bag, in your car’s cubby, backpack, pocket, handbag or everywhere all at once. When you start getting better at playing, you can start freestyling, playing on your own and doing tricks.
