TAG WITH BUCKETS OF WATER

THIS GAME IS PLAYED JUST LIKE TAG EXCEPT THE "IT" THROWS A BUCKET OF
WATER ON THE PLAYERS INSTEAD OF TAGGING THEM IN ORDER TO CATCH THEM.
ONCE A PLAYER IS SPLASHED WITH WATER, HE BECOMES "IT" AND IS GIVEN
THE BUCKET TO FILL WITH WATER SO THAT HE CAN THROW IT ON SOMEONE
ELSE.

Submitter comment: THIS GAME WAS INVENTED AND PLAYED BY THE INFORMANT AND HER FRIENDS O
HOT SUMMER DAYS. IT WAS MORE FUN TO PLAY WHILE WEARING CLOTHES, BUT
A BATHING SUIT WAS OFTEN WORN.
