RED FOX BLOODY MURDER!

"A GAME SIMILAR TO HIDE-AND-SEEK IS 'RED FOX BLOODY MURDER!' IN
THIS GAME, THE PERSON WHO IS 'IT' HIDES INSTEAD OF THE PLAYERS
WHO COUNT WHILE HE IS HIDING AND GO SEEK HIM OUT. WHENEVER
ONE OF THE PLAYERS SEES THAT PERSON, THE PLAYER WILL SHOUT,
'RED FOX BLOODY MURDER!' AND WILL RUN FOR 'GOOL.' THE GAME
CONTINUES UNTIL SOMEONE IS CAUGHT OR ALL HAVE REACHED 'GOOL'
SAFELY."

Submitter comment: 'GOOL' REFERS TO THE SPOT THAT IS 'FREE.'
BEFORE RUNNING TO 'GOOL', EACH PLAYER MUST SHOUT "RED FOX
BLOODY MURDER!" AND THE PERSON HIDING HAS TO BE SEEN BY EACH
PLAYER.
