Starlight, Starbright

A stalking tag game

Sent in by Myriah

“This is the best game in the world to play with your friends and family on a warm summer night!”

Choose one player to be the “ghost”. This player goes and hides somewhere while the remainder of the group counts to a certain number, about thirty is best. When the group have finished counting then they MUST stay together and walk around the area being played in and chant:

“Starlight, starbright, I hope I see a ghost tonight”

When the group gets near the place where the ghost is hiding, the ghost jumps out and tries to tag someone. Everyone runs back to base (the place where the group was counting earlier), before being tagged by the ghost. If a player is tagged they become the ghost for the next round. If more than one person is tagged, the first person tagged is the next ghost.
