Backwards Tag


Non Elimination


Equipment: None



This is the same game as Manhunt, but all the players including the taggers must run backwards. I usually start out as It because I can keep going the whole game, whereas most kids will tire out and give up if they are It for the whole time. Running backwards, the person who is It and anyone who is tagged must try to tag everyone. The game ends when everybody is It. In the later stages of the game I like to shout out the names of the people who have not been tagged so as to focus the attentions of the taggers.


Play this outside on the grass so if they fall on their bum they won't be hurt.
