RED ROVER

THERE ARE TWO LINES OF PEOPLE WITH BETWEEN SIX AND TEN
PEOPLE ON EACH LINE (TEAM). ONE TEAM AGREES ON A PERSON
TO RUN OVER FROM THE OTHER TEAM AND TRY TO BREAK THROUGH
THEIR LINE. IF THAT PERSON SUCCEEDS HE GETS TO PICK
FROM THAT LINE AND TAKE HIM BACK TO BE ON HIS TEAM.
IF HE DOESN'T BREAK THROUGH HE HAS TO STAY WITH THAT
TEAM. THE TEAM WITH THE MOST PLAYERS AT THE END OF
THE GAME WINS. THE GAME ENDS EITHER WHEN THEY ARE
OUT OF TIME OR WHEN THEY GET TIRED OF PLAYING.
