One of the players in the group hides, while the other players seek to

find him. Should a player succeed, he endeavors to get into the hiding

place unobserved by the others and hides with the first player. As the

game continues, and other players succeed in finding the hiding place,

the number of hiding players continues to increase until they are

packed in like sardines, hence the name. It is difficult for them,

crowded together, in this way, to keep from disclosing the hiding place

to the remaining players. The game continues until the last player has

discovered the hiding place. The first one to make the discovery hides

in the next round.

This is a good game to be played around a farm house where there are a

number of hiding places, or in the woods where there are trees,

boulders and ravines.
