Animal Chase

Category: MISCELLANEOUS ACTIVE GAMES





_10 to 30 or more players._

_Playground; gymnasium._

Two pens are marked off in distant corners of the playground. One
player, called the chaser, stands at one side of one of these pens.
The other players stand within the pen that is nearest the chaser. All
of the players in the pen are named for different animals, there being
several players of each kind. Thus there may be a considerable number
each of bears, deer, foxes, etc. The chaser calls the name of any
animal he chooses as a signal for the players to run. For instance, he
may call "Bears!" whereupon all of the players who represent bears
must run across to the other pen, the chaser trying to catch them.

Any player caught before reaching the opposite pen changes places with
the chaser.

The particular point of difference between this and some other
similar chasing games is that the chaser may not know just
which of the players in the pen will start out in response to
the name of the animal that he calls.
