At one end of a playing space (yard, field) the players line up, facing the one player who is "it." "It" plays from the center of the field, and calls out "British Bulldog." The line of players then attempts to run from one end of the field to the other, while "it" tries to tackle other players. Tackled players then join "it's" team. The game proceeds back and forth across the field, each time more players are tackled. The winner is the last one standing, who then becomes "it" for the next game. Caution: this can be a very rough game, and is to be played on grassy or other soft surfaces.
