When you get hit, instead of being out, you join the other team. Eventually it becomes everyone versus one person. Good times!

EDIT: Oops, sorry, just watched Ryno's video. This comment didn't add much to the question. Sorry.

We usually like classic, but play with a twist sometimes. Its where we have someone who is not playing (and usually not paying attention :P) to scream out JAILBREAK which means everyone who was out can get back in. It can happen anytime.

Ours has always been the one you mentioned but we've called it "freeball."

My favorite is classic dodgeball. Two sides, a bunch of balls. Get hit you're out. Catch a ball and someone from your team comes back in.

The one real variation I really like is "lines." When each side is getting down to a few players, I call lines which means students can cross the center line and go either to the volleyball back/forecourt line or to the three point line creating a no-mans land in the middle where both teams can go.

Other variations:
-You come back in when the person who got you out gets out.
-Prison dodgeball: when you're out, you go beyond the volleyball service line. (Those who are in have to stay in front of the line.) You get back in when someone from your team throws a ball over your opponents and you catch it.
