based game concocted
by my cousin
s, my brother
, and I, when we were kids
The basic Idea is that one person secretly selected to be it (eg by drawing slips of paper, one marked with an x, or by all closing our eyes and having some impartial entity (Grandma) tap one of us on the shoulder) We would then go into a dark room and hide, after a fixed amount of time the game would start.
The person who was it, would try to find everyone else and tag em, when a person was tagged e would yell out and then become another It. When only one person is left un-tagged, e wins.
