A VARIATION OF THE GAME OF "HIDE AND GO SEEK" IS A GAME
CALLED "NO WITCHES ARE OUT TONIGHT." IN THIS GAME
ONLY ONE PERSON IS SENT OUT TO HIDE. AFTER A FEW
MINUTES THE REST OF THE PLAYERS HAVE TO WALK AROUND
THE PLAYING AREA SHOUTING "NO WITCHES ARE OUT
TONIGHT." THE ONE WHO HAS HIDDEN PICKS THE BEST
OPPORTUNITY TO JUMP OUT AND GRAB THIS PERSON AND AT
THIS TIME THE GRABBED PLAYER IS OUT. WHEN ALL ARE
OUT THE GAME IS ENDED AND A NEW "WITCH" IS CHOSEN.

Submitter comment: I NEVER PLAYED THE GAME BUT I OFTEN WATCHED MY
SMALL COUSINS PLAY IT IN RECENT YEARS. IT IS THERE
THAT I LEARNED IT.
