How to Play: Sardines
How to play: This game is the opposite of Hide and Seek. The person designated as "it" hides while the rest of the players cover their eyes and count to a designated number. The players then spread out to find the hidden "it." When a player finds "it," she or he must then join "it" in hiding.
The rules: Who will be "it" can be determined by a counting-out game, such as One Potato.
How to win: In this game, there isn't so much a winner as there is a loser. The last person to find the hiding group is the loser. This person becomes "it" in the next round.
What else you need to know: Sardines can also refer to a derivative of doorbell-ringing games, in which players knock on someone's door and then quickly lie down side by side in the person's front yard. The players then try to outlast each other to see who can stay still the longest without laughing as the homeowner comes out to investigate.
