Red Rover

How to Play

Divide players into 2 teams.

Each team forms a chain by standing in a straight line holding hands. The 2 teams face each other about 30 to 50 steps apart.

Choose which team goes first. That team secretly picks a player from the other team to call over.

Once they have decided, they call out RED ROVER, RED ROVER WE CALL (insert name of the player picked) OVER!

When a player’s name is called she runs toward the other team and tries to break through the hands of 2 players in the chain.

If a player is able to break through the chain she goes back to her team. If she is unable to pass through the chain she stays with the other team.

Teams take turns calling players over.

The game is over when a team only has 1 player left.
