We used to play this game alot. It consisted of two teams. One team was it, the other team went and hid. The object of the game was to capture the other team members and take them to your base. If you could catch them all, you won. Then it was the other teams turn. When you caught someone you yelled, “One, two, three, your my man no breaks, safety. Then that individual could not escape. You held onto their shirt until you walked back to base (street corner, stoop, etc.) The other team could release all their teammates by one of them stepping on the base and hollering “Spring”. Al.
