What you need: All you need is a group of children. This game can be played indoors or outdoors.

How to play: One player is chosen to be "it," or the "seeker." The rest of the players hide while the "seeker" counts to a designated number. Once the "seeker" is finished counting, he or she tries to find the other players.

The rules: Who will be "it" can be determined by a counting-out game, such as One Potato. Once the game begins, whoever is found can either be out of the game or become "it."

How to win: Find the best hiding place to be the last person found.

What else you need to know: This game is another variation of Tag. Some variations require the "hiders" to run back to a home base after a specified amount of time without being tagged by the "seeker."
