This game is played with a number of people lined up on
one end of a driveway or front lawn, and one person ("it")
stands at the other end with his back turned to the others.
The person who is "it" will yell "green light" followed by
any other color he wishes but red. When "green light" is
heard, the others begin to advance toward "it" as fast or
as slow as he wishes. When "it" wants to, he will yell out
"red light" and turn around. Everyone advancing must freeze
when they hear "red light". When "it" turns around, if he
sees anyone moving, he sends them back to the beginning.
"It" then turns back around and play continues until
one of the contestants reaches "it." That person then
becomes it and play begins over again.
