Throwing and catching a series of "trick" catches such as "left hand by itself", "right hand by itself", "tunnel catch" (between the legs), "eagle catch" (one hand swooping down like an eagle), "behind the back" and "foot catch". The one with the most catches wins! The below images provided courtesy of LMIFox!
Trick Catch Doubling
Throwing two boomerangs. Use one boomerang with a longer flight and longer hover, and one with a shorter flight and shorter hover. Hold both boomerangs in one hand and throw…yes, both at the same time. Combine trick catches in each combination throw ( for example a tunnel catch and a right hand only catch ). The one with the most catches wins!
The boomerang is thrown from the bull’s-eye and allowed to land untouched. Points are awarded for accuracy to the bull’s-eye. Ten points inside the bull’s-eye, 9 points if it is on the line and accordingly on down to 1 point if it lands on the 10 meter line. Five throws… add up the points. This is a great beginner boomerang game!

Two boomerangs. You must keep one boomerang in the air at all times. Throw and catch till one person wins!
Many people consider this to be the quintessential boomerang event. Thrown from the bull’s-eye, points are awarded for flight distance, accuracy of the return, and catching the boomerang. Five throws are made by each competitor. Maximum possible points with five catches, five throws over 50 meters, and five catches in the bull’seye is 100. Four points for each catch. Six points for 50+ meters. Ten points for accuracy. Distance points are only earned if accuracy and/or catching points are earned.

Just like it sounds. Go for some trick catches … don’t drop!!
Just like pig or horse from basketball. Each thrower has to duplicate the previous catch (unless it’s a drop). Miss a catch, get a letter…GLORP and you’re gone!! Last one throwing wins. This is tons of fun with an indoor boomerang like a Funfly or Firefly!
