Tommy Tiddler's Ground

Category: MISCELLANEOUS ACTIVE GAMES





_5 to 30 or more players._

_Playground; gymnasium._

The ground is divided by a line into two equal parts. One of these
belongs to Tommy Tiddler, who stands on his side of the line and may
not cross it. All of the other players are on the other side of the
line, and venture across the line into Tommy Tiddler's ground,
taunting him with the remark


"I'm on Tommy Tiddler's ground,
Picking up gold and silver!"

Tommy may tag any one on his ground, and any one so tagged changes
places with him. The players will learn to add to the interest of the
game by venturing as near Tommy Tiddler as possible and being very
tantalizing in inducing him to run after them. Tommy Tiddler, on his
part, will find opportunity for considerable finesse, such as in
appearing to give his attention entirely to one player, then suddenly
turning and dashing for another.
