One person is designated "it" and a home base location is chosen. "It" goes and hides somewhere around the perimeter of the house. After counting to fifty, the rest of the group tries to run around the house without getting tagged by the person who is "it". Once you are tagged you join the person or persons who are "it" and will hide with them in the next round. Those who are not tagged begin again at the home base and the process begins again until only one person is left who has not been tagged.
