What you need: You need at least four players and a large outdoor playing area.

How to play: One player is selected to be "it," or as "it" is referred to in this game, "Mr. Yuck." In this variation of tag, players are "wounded" when they are tagged by "Mr. Yuck."

The rules: At the starting signal, all players run away from "Mr. Yuck" as he chases them. If someone is tagged, she is "wounded" and must cover her wound with her hand. The second time she is tagged, she must cover the other wound with her other hand. The third time she is tagged, she is out of the game.

How to win: The last person remaining in the game is the winner.

What else you need to know: The winner has the option of being "Mr. Yuck" in the next round of the game.
