|The Blob is another variation of tag.
It requires no equipment, but it does require a large playing area.
In this game, everyone is "It" and everyone is being chased. The object is to capture all the other players.
Everyone starts off in pairs. Everyone tries to capture everyone else while avoiding capture.
In order to capture others, a pair or group must surround another group. The pair or group must be able to hold hands around the group being captured.
When a group is captured, the players must join hands with the other team. They are now a larger "Blob."
Play continues until a stalemate between two large groups occurs or until one group captures all other groups.
