RED LIGHT, GREEN LIGHT

NO WALKING, NO TALKING, NO RED LIGHT NO NOTHING.

Submitter comment: DURING THIS TIME THE LEADER,S BACK IS TURNED IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTIO
FROM THE GROUP OF CHILDREN. THE CHILDREN CAN MOVE AS MUCH AS THEY
WANT UNTIL THE LEADER SPEAKS AGAIN. WHEN THE LEADER SAYS, "NO
WALKING, NO TALKING NO GREEN LIGHT, NO NOTHING;"
THE GROUP OF CHILDREN MUST STOP MOVING,
IMMEDIATELY BEFORE THE LEADER TURNS AROUND AND SEES THEM. IF YOU
ARE CAUGHT MOVING YOU ARE OUT OF THE GAME. THE PERSON THAT STAYS IN
THE GAME THE LONGEST WINS, IF THE LEADER CAN NOT CATCH HIM MOVING,
BUT IF HE CATCHES HIM MOVING, HE WILL TAKE THE LEADER,S PLACE.
