Chinese Frozen Tag

This is an outdoor tag game.
Any number can play.
One person is chosen to be it.
The boundaries of the playing area are determined depending
on the number of players.
"It" begins the game by giving the players a ten second
get-away. He then proceeds to tag the players.
Once a player has been tagged he is frozen.
This means he must stand in the place he was tagged with
his hands on his head and his legs spread apart.
"It" continues to tag the rest of the players.
However, at the same time, other players who are not yet
frozen, may unfreeze the frozen players by crawling between
their legs. But, this process takes a few extra seconds
and may cause both to become frozen if "it" can tag them.
The game ends when "it" can get all players frozen at once.
The player who was frozen first becomes "it" for the next
game.
If a large number of people play, there may be two "it"s.
