This is a page for all the different types of variations to the game of tag.

Base Game

  1. Choose one scout to be "on"
  2. That scout chases other scouts and needs to tag them (generally by lightly tapping them on the shoulder)
  3. Any scout that gets tapped is then "on" and the game continues


Chain Tag

  1. Two scouts are "on". They must hold hands and try and catch any other scouts
  2. When a scout gets caught by the "on" pair, that scout joins the pair by holding hands with one of them, forming a chain.
  3. As they catch more people, the chain gets longer
  4. The chain of "on" scouts can break up into smaller chains, as long as the chains are of even length (there can be no chain of 3, 5, 7, etc.)
  5. The game ends when there is only one scout remaining
