Mister X (running and catching game)

Form of organisation: Entire group / class

Materials: none


Description of the game:
All children stand in one line facing the wall with their eyes closed. The game leader sneaks quietly past them and with his finger marks the back of the child with an X that should be the catcher or Mister X. As start signal, the game leader then shouts: Mister X!
Then all the children run away. Players caught by Mister X stay still in X-position, i.e. legs apart and arms diagonally upwards. A player in vicinity may free the captive by crawling through the legs of the captive.Variant: Also several children may be designated as Mister X.
