This game is sometimes called "Hide and Seek," One of the players is
made "it" by any of the familiar counting-out rhymes. The rest then
secure a hiding place while he counts fifty or one hundred. A certain
tree or fence corner is considered "home." "It" then attempts to spy
his hidden playmates in their hiding places and to run "home"
shouting, "I spy" and their names. If the one discovered can get home
before "it," he does so, shouting, "In free!" with all the breath that
is left in him. The game is especially interesting just at dusk, when
the uncertain light makes the "outs" brave in approaching home without
detection. If "it" succeeds in capturing all the players the first
one caught is "it" for the next game.
