Area: Hall, grass, hard surface, anywhere.
Instructions: Put children into groups of 4.
Three children join hands in a circle and the fourth child stands out (they will be the tagger).
One child from the circle is chosen to be the king and the free player (fourth child) must attempt to tag the king. The tagger is not permitted to reach across the circle to tag.
Children in the circle can side-step and turn to prevent the king being tagged.
When tagged two new children become the king and the tagger.
Variation: Can be played as 4 against 1 or 5 against 1.
