TURTLE TAG


Objective:

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.

Players:

6 or more players

Needed:

None

Rules:

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.

Winning:

The game ends when the tagger has captured all players.

Variations:

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.
