Kate you are correct 500 is awesome. However, when retelling this story I found that a lot of people didn't know what 500 is. This seems incredible to me. 500 is a staple game. How do you not know what it is?

One person has the ball-
the thrower

The thrower throws the ball towards the
group and yells out a certain number of
points (ie 200).

The big group of many people stand a little ways away-
the catchers

Whoever catches the ball gets that number of points. Whoever among the catchers get 500 points first is the new thrower.

It is a super simple game, that I have been playing for years. Is it a midwest thing? I don't really think so. Get with the program.
