_10 to 60 players._


The players should all be seated, an even number in each row of seats.
At a signal, the last player in each line runs forward and tags the
front wall. As soon as this player is out of the aisle, the others all
move backward one seat. This leaves the front seat vacant, and the
runner having touched the wall returns immediately and takes this
vacant front seat. As the player sits he raises his hand, which is a
signal for the player who is now the last one in the line to run
forward, the line moving backward one place as soon as he is out of
the aisle. He, in turn, having touched the wall, takes the vacant
front seat. The play is continued in this way until every one in the
row has run.

The line wins whose player, sitting at the start in the front seat,
first returns to his seat.

As in all schoolroom games where there is running, the seated players
should be very careful to keep their feet under the desks, so there
will be nothing in the aisles over which the runners may trip.

This is one of the best class room games and is very popular.
