HUNT THE SHEEP
Source: Outdoor Sports and Games
Category: ONE HUNDRED OUTDOOR GAMES
Two captains are chosen and the players divided into equal sides. One
side stays in the home goal and the other side finds a hiding place.
The captain of the side that is hidden or "out" then goes back to the
other side and they march in a straight line to find the hidden sheep.
When they approach the hiding place their own captain shouts, "Apple!"
which is a warning that danger is near. When he is sure of their
capture or discovery he shouts, "Run, sheep, run!" and all the party
make a dash for the goal.
