Fox Trail Single Rim

Source: Games For The Playground, Home, School And Gymnasium

(Fox and Geese; Half Bushel)


_3 to 20 players._

_Out of doors; snow; seashore; gymnasium._

This is one of the few distinctive snow games, but may be
played anywhere that a large diagram may be outlined on the
ground. It is very popular with children, and makes an
admirable game for older players as well. See the more
complicated form, with double-rim diagram, preceding this.

A large circle from fifteen to thirty feet in diameter should be
marked on the ground and crossed with intersecting lines like the
spokes of a wheel, there being about five such lines (ten spokes). The
more players there are, the larger should be the circle and the
greater the number of spokes; but there is no fixed relation between
the number of spokes and players. If played in the snow, this diagram
may be trampled down with the feet; if on the fresh earth or sand, it
may be drawn with the heel or a stick; or if in a gymnasium or on a
pavement, marked with chalk.

One player is chosen to be It or Hunter. He stands in the center, that
is, on the hub of the wheel. The other players scatter around the rim
and are foxes. They are not stationed at any one point as in the
Double Rim game, but run or stand anywhere around the rim when not
dashing across the spokes. The object of the game is for the foxes to
cross the wheel to some opposite point without being tagged by the
hunter. They may only run, however, on the prescribed trails
is, on the lines of the diagram. In this form of the game (the Single
Rim diagram) they may run only straight across, and are not at liberty
to turn an angle at the hub and seek refuge over any other trail than
the direct continuation of the one on which they started. The hunter
changes places with any one whom he tags.
