HIDE AND SEEK.

Source: Games for Everybody






One child is chosen out. This one stands by a post or in a corner
which is called "base," and hides his eyes. The children decide among
themselves how much he shall count while they are hiding. Suppose they
choose 100, then he counts 5, 10, 15, 20, etc., until he reaches 100,
and then he calls out:

"Ready or not,
You shall be caught."

Each child having hidden in some place while he was counting, remains
perfectly still while he is hunting for them. If he passes by some
child without finding him, that one can run to the "base" and say
"One, two, three, I'm in free!" As many children as can try to get in
"free," but if the one who is out tags any of them before they reach
"base," the first one tagged is the next to hide his eyes.





Next: HANGMAN.

Previous: OLD SOLDIER.
