LAST TAG

Source: Outdoor Sports and Games
Category: ONE HUNDRED OUTDOOR GAMES





There are a great many games of "tag" that are familiar to boys and
girls. One of the common games is "last tag," which simply means that
a boy tags another and makes him "it" before leaving the party on his
way home. It is the common boys' method of saying "good-bye" when
leaving school for home. The principal rule of last tag is that there
is "no tagging back." The boy who is "it" must not attempt to tag the
one who tagged him, but must run after some one else. It is a point of
honour with a boy not to be left with "last tag" against him, but he
must try to run some one else down, when he is then immune and can
watch the game in safety, or can leave for home with no blot on his
escutcheon.
