HIDE AND SEEK

SOMEONE IS CHOSEN AS "IT." ALL OF THE OTHER
PLAYERS HIDE WHILE "IT" SAYS, "LAST NIGHT,
THE NIGHT BEFORE, TWENTY-FIVE ROBBERS AT MY
DOOR. I GOT UP, LET THEM IN, HIT THEM OVER
THE HEAD WITH A ROLLING PIN." THE "IT" COUNTS
TO TWENTY-FIVE AND YELLS, "HERE I COME, READY OR
NOT." PRIOR TO HIDING, THE PLAYERS AGREE ON A
DESIGNATED SAFE BASE WHICH THEY MUST TOUCH
BEFORE "IT" TAGS THEM. IF "IT" TAGS SOMEONE
BEFORE THEY TOUCH BASE, THEY BECOME "IT."
