Yes, we used to play Hide…
Yes, we used to play Hide and Seek (less the go).
The “it” person had to cover his/her eyes and count to 100, the rest of the group went and hid.
Ususally a common place or object was used as the “I’m Free or I’m Home” point. This was where all the rest of the gang, when not immediately sought out by the “it” person, could run fast before being seen (we always played this at nite)by the “it” person. If we got to that point without being “tagged” by the “it” person,then we would not have to become the “it” person for hte next game. Ususally the first to be discovered as to where they were hiding was the next “it” person. When nearly all of the kids were “home free” or the “it” person just gave up trying to find them, or if mom yelled for us to come it as it was getting late, the “it” person would call out “Ally, Ally in come free”, over and over several times. When doing this, all the gang had to face the “home or free” point and close their eyes so they could not see where the other good hiders came from so not to show their hiding positions. This came up just recently, so I had to share. Plus, this friend of mine, from down south, says no no no that is the game of Ghost. I had to disagree. We played a game of Ghost which was while traveling in the car. Does anyone have the “correct” definition of what Ghost is. My friend is ademate he is correct and I am wrong. I would like to hear of other versions of “Ghost”.
