What you need: Of course, you will need a flashlight. This game is best played at night, either indoors or outdoors.

How to play: In this variation of Tag, the person designated as "it" tags players with a flashlight instead of physically touching them.

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

How to win: Play the game without being tagged.

What else you need to know: There are many variations on this game, including Ball Tag and Freeze Tag.
