Hunt The Fox

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

_20 to 60 or more players._

_Playground; gymnasium._

The players stand in two parallel lines or files facing to the front,
with about five feet distance between the files, and considerable
distance between each two players in a file, so that the runners may
have space to run between them. The head player of one file is a fox
and the head player of the opposite file the hunter.

At a signal the fox starts to run, winding in and out from one side to
the other of his file until he reaches the bottom, when he turns and
comes up the opposite file. The fox is not obliged to run between each
two players, but may skip any number that he wishes, and choose his
own track. The hunter must follow in exactly the same trail, being
obliged, should he make a mistake, to go back to the point at which he
diverged from the path of the fox. If the fox succeeds in getting back
to the head of the second file without being caught, he is considered
to have escaped, and takes his place at the foot of his own file.
Should he be caught by the hunter, he changes places with the latter,
the hunter going to the foot of the fox's file, and the fox taking the
hunter's original place at the head of his file. The second player in
the fox's file, who should have moved up to the front to keep the
lines even, is then fox for the next chase.
