This game may be played with any number of players, and is especially

adapted for a school or lawn game. Two players are chosen as pursuers

and the rest are divided equally and stand two by two facing each

other in two columns. The two pursuers stand at the head of each

column and face each other. When ready they say, "Cross the Rubicon,"

and at this signal the rear couple from each line must run forward and

try to reach the rear of the other line. The pursuers must not look

back, but as soon as the runners are abreast of them must try to tag

them before they reach the place of safety. The captured runners

become pursuers, and the one who was "it" takes his or her place at

the rear of the other line.
