PRISONER'S BASE

Source: Outdoor Sports and Games
Category: ONE HUNDRED OUTDOOR GAMES





Two captains select sides. They then mark out on the ground two bases,
or homes. They also mark out two "prisons" near each home base. Then
each side stands in its own home and a player runs out and advances
toward the enemy's home. One of the enemy will then run out and
endeavour to tag him before he can run back to his own base, and one
of his side will try to tag the enemy, the rule being that each in
turn must have left his home after his opponent. If a player is
tagged, he becomes a prisoner of the other side and is put into the
prison. The successful tagger may then return to Ids home without
danger of being tagged. A prisoner may be rescued at any time if one
of his side can elude the opponents and tag him free from prison. The
game ends when all of one side are made prisoners.
