Regular Steal the Bacon usually consists of a square, four participants, and an object to grab and pull across one side of the square. Ultimate Steal the Bacon consists of nine squares, 1 representative each from four teams, and a Tugball. The game begins in the center square. On a given signal, each participant attempts to pull the Tugball across their side of the center square. Whoever wins receives two points. The next session takes place in the square the Tugball was pulled into during the previous session by the next representative from each team. Points for the winner of this session depends on who wins (see diagrams below). If a team pulls the Tugball outside of the nine squares onto their side, they get 5 points and the Tugball is placed back inside the center square.
