Tail Tally

by Kit

Equipment:Piece of rope or string for each player.
Preparation:2 equally sized teams, define two areas as pig pens, or homes.

Each team goes to their ‘pen’ and nominates one of their team to be the catcher, all the other players have a piece of string or rope as a tail which they tuck loosely into their clothing. Players are then released from their pens and catchers have to snatch as many tails as possible in a given time. Players when they lose a tail have to go back to their pens from which they may be released if they are given another tail by their own team catcher.

After a time stop and count to see which team has the most tails, including those that the catcher has.
