_4 to 30 or more players._

_Indoors; out of doors; schoolroom._

This game is a great favorite with boys for outdoor play, but may also
be used in the gymnasium, various pieces of apparatus being used in
lieu of a fence.

A certain length of fence is chosen for the game. The one who is It
gives the other players a slight start in which to vault over the
fence, when he immediately vaults over and tries to tag them. This
tagging may be done only when both players are on the same side of the

The dodging is made almost or quite entirely by vaulting or dodging
back and forth across the fence within the length or boundaries
previously determined. Any player tagged must change places with the
one who is It.

This game may be used in the schoolroom by
vaulting over the seats. When played in this way, it is not allowable
to reach across seats or desks to tag a player. The tagging must be
done in the same aisle in which the tagger stands.
