KICK THE CAN

THIS GAME CAN BE PLAYED BY ANY NUMBER OF PEOPLE. ALL
THAT IS NEEDED IS A LARGE FIELD. TO START THE GAME,
ONE PERSON IS MADE 'IT,' AND IT IS HIS RESPONSIBILITY
TO CATCH THE OTHERS. THE FIRST PERSON HE CATCHES WILL
BE IT AT THE START OF THE NEXT GAME. THERE ARE TWO
GOAL LINES WHICH REPRESENT FREE ZONES AND THE OBJECT
IS TO GET FROM ONE ZONE TO THE OTHER WITHOUT GETTING
CAUGHT. THE ONE WHO IS IT CALLS ONE PERSON ACROSS
OR HE CAN SAY "KICK THE CAN" IN WHICH CASE, EVERYONE
TRIES TO GET ACROSS AT THE SAME TIME.
