Game: Touch Tag
(Detail from Brueghel's Painting)

Touch Tag

Who has not played a game of tag at sometime in their life? There are many versions of the game of tag, and Touch Tag is just one of these.

How The Game Is Played

This game can be played indoors in a large room as well as outdoors. Any number can play. Brueghel choose to include about a half-dozen players in his illustration of the game.

Someone is chosen as IT. All the players scatter. IT chases the players and tries to touch one of them.

The player who is touched becomes IT, and the game begins again.
