HIDE AND GO SEEK

WHEN PLAYING HIDE AND GO SEEK, THE GOAL WAS CALLED THE
"GHOUL." AFTER COUNTING TO THE PREDETERMINED NUMBER,
"IT" YELLS:
PEACHES, PEACHES, PUMPKIN PIE,
WHO'S NOT, READY HOLLER I.
ANYBODY AROUND MY GHOUL SHALL BE IT.
IF AN UNDISCOVERED PLAYER MANAGES TO TAG THE GOAL,
HE CRIES OUT:
ALLIE, ALLIE, IN FREE!

FIVE OR SIX CHILDREN STAND AT DESIGNATED STARTING
LINE. ANOTHER FIFTY OR SEVENTY FEET IS THE GOAL
WHERE THE PERSON IT STANDS WITH BACK FACING THE
STARTING LINE. THE PERSON IT IS A POLICEMAN. WHEN
HE SAYS GREEN LIGHT THE CHILDREN RUN TOWARDS THE
GOAL. WHEN HE SAYS RED LIGHT HE TURNS AROUND QUICKLY
AND ANYONE ONE OF THE PLAYERS THAT HE CATCHES
STILL MOVING MUST RETURN TO THE STARTING LINE. THE
SAME ACTIVITY TAKES PLACE AGAIN AND AGAIN UNTIL
SOMEONE REACHES THE GOAL. THE FIRST ONE TO REACH
IT IS THE WINNER.
