_10 to 100 players._

_Gymnasium; playground._

Any number of players may engage in this contest, which is one of the
best for a large number, containing as it does both excellent sport
and vigorous exercise.

A line is drawn down the middle of the playing space. The players are
divided into two parties and stand one party on either side of the
line. The game starts on a signal and consists in catching hold of an
opponent by any part of his body, as hand, arm, or foot, reaching
over the line and so pulling him across the boundary. Any number of
players may try to secure a hold on an opponent and any number may
come to his rescue and try to resist his being pulled over the line,
either by pulling him in the opposite direction or by trying to secure
a hold on one of the opponents. A player does not belong to the enemy
until his entire body has been pulled over the line. He must then join
his captors in trying to secure players from across the line. The
party wins which has the largest number of players at the end of time
limits.
