RED ROVER, RED ROVER

THERE ARE TWO TEAMS, PLACED IN PARALLEL LINES SOME
DISTANCE FROM EACH OTHER. EVERYONE HOLDS HANDS, WHILE
THE TEAMS ALTERNATE IN CALLING AN OPPOSING MEMBER OVER
TO ATTEMPT TO BREAK THROUGH THEIR LINE. THE CALLING
CHIME IS: RED ROVER, RED ROVER, LET (NAME) CROSS OVER.
IF THE PERSON BREAKS THROUGH, HE CAN TAKE AN OPPOSING
MEMBER OVER TO HIS RANKS. IF HE LOSES, HE MUST STAY
WITH THAT TEAM. THE TEAM THAT WINS ALL THE KIDS, WINS
THE GAME.
