There is lots of information on the the Beep Kickball Association website at http://www.beepkickball.com .
Here are the very basic rules....
There are kicker and outfielders. The number of outfitters really depends on the amount of players. You could have a fun causal family game with one outfielder. Whats great about this game is both the kickers and the outfielders have fun.

The kicker and the outfielders are blindfolded. The kicker kicks the ball. Someone activate one of the bases to make sound and the kicker runs to the sound of the base.(the kicker only runs to one base and they don't know which one till the sound is going) The kickball is also beeping and the outfielder find the ball. When they find the ball they raise it up. If they raise it before the kicker get to the base the kicker is out. If the kicker makes it to the base before the ball is found the kicker is safe. Its really that simple.
The official Beep Kickball is $140. The ball is very well made. I imagine if someone was really creative they could put some kind of beeper in a ball and play that way. I personally think the official ball is great and worth the investment.
For bases there are a few options. You can buy/use official beepball bases. Which are about $300 dollars. Which can be bought here http://www.centurylinkpioneergear.com/

They also recommend as a lower cost option hand held buzzers in a box which they sell for $20 dollars each on the Beep Kickball website
beeping frisbee which you can find at different stores around 15 dollars may work also.
They also say you could simply have someone clap and be the base and thats free.
