"RELEASE"

TO PLAY RELEASE, TWO TEAMS OF AT LEAST THREE APIECE (BUT MORE
IF POSSIBLE) ARE FORMED. A SMALL AREA--SUCH AS A PORCH OR A STRIP
OF LAWN IS USED AS A JAIL. ONE MEMBER FROM TEAM II ACTS AS JAILGUARD,
WHILE THE REST GO HUNTING FOR MEMBERS OF TEAM I. WHEN A HIDER IS
CAUGHT, HE IS BROUGHT TO THE JAIL. IF ONE OF HIS TEAM-MEMBERS IS
ABLE TO TAP HIM WHILE HE IS IN JAIL, THEN HE IS "RELEASED;" BUT IF
THE GUARD TAGS THE PERSON ATTEMPTING TO FREE HIS TEAM-MATE, THEN THAT
PERSON MUST GO IN JAIL, ALSO. WHEN ALL THE MEMBERS OF THE TEAM ARE
CAUGHT, SIDES ARE TRADED, AND TEAM II DOES THE HIDING. (IN MY WORDS)
