This game is a short-term battle between two partners, blindfolded and holding hands, and the rest of the group in a circle holding hands around them. The partners’ job is to tag someone within 30 seconds or they have to start over. The group’s job is to avoid them for the same amount of time without breaking hands. The partners are trying to tag the people to take their place, the group is trying to not be those people. You will need an open space, it’s best outdoors.
You can usually play this for a handful of rounds before people start getting tired of it. This is a great game for pictures and to get people amped up for a bigger game or activity. Some variations are the center group isn’t blindfolded, but their feet are tied in a 3-legged race way, lose the time limit, or have there be a Marco/Polo call-response.
