What you need: All you need are players.

How to play: Pair each player up with another player, and have them stand in a circle with each pair of partners holding hands. Choose one pair to be "it," and they will be runners.

The rules: The runners go around the outside of the circle and tag a pair of joined hands. The runners quickly run one direction while the tagged team races in the other direction. The first pair back to the vacated spot gets to keep the spot, and the other pair becomes "it."

How to win: You can keep up with which pair is never "it" and award that pair as the winners.

What else you need to know: This game can get a bit rough, so you may want to set up rules for passing so no one gets hurt.
