_5 to 30 or more players._

_Playground; gymnasium._

One player is chosen to be It, and stands near a post with the fingers
of his hands interlocked. The other players, each clasping his own
hands in the same way, crowd around the post and touch it with the
clasped hands. The one who is It counts ten, whereupon the players all
run, the one who is It trying to tag any of them. None of the players
may unclasp their hands until they are tagged, whereupon they are
prisoners and clasp hands with It, forming a line which thereafter is
the tagging line, though only the original It may tag the other
players. The game is a contest between the tagging line, which tries
to recruit and retain its numbers, and the free players, who try (1)
to avoid being captured for the tagging line, and (2) to reduce the
tagging line by breaking through it; but the players in the line must
resist this. Each time that the line is broken, the one of the two
players (whose hands were parted) who stands toward the head of the
line is dropped out of the game. A free player may not be tagged after
he has thrown himself upon (touched) a pair of hands that he is trying
to part. The last player caught by the tagging line is the winner and
becomes It for the next game.
