Party Game Central



A game of touch tag where you can't tag someone while on their back like an upside down turtle!

Game type:

Active. A lot of movement may be required.


6 or more players




Choose a tag area such as a front yard and determine boundaries etc. and a jail area. Then choose a 'tagger'. The tagger attempts to tag players while they run or stand within the defined area. If a player is tagged they go to the jail. During the game players can lay down on their backs like a stranded turtle forming a safety area. While in this position a player cannot be tagged. Players can only stay in the turtle position for a limited amount of time, usually 5 or 10 seconds. This should be determined prior to playing.


The game ends when the tagger has captured all players.


In another version, there is no jail and any player who is tagged instantly becomes the next tagger. There are no tag backs in this version.
