Party Game
Hide 'N' Seek
 
 
Choose a place or thing to be the "base".

One person is "it". They hide their eyes and count out loud (so everyone can hear them) to 20, or 100, or some other number, based on size of the playing area, and age of the kids.

Meanwhile, the other players run and hide.

When their done counting, they yell, "Ready or not, here I come!" and go off to find the other players.

The object for the players is to hide and not be found, or to sneak back to the base. If they make it back, they yell "Free!"

The object for the player who is "it" is to find the other players, at which point they run back to the base and declare "I spy {player's name} hiding in the {place}".

The first person caught is "it" the next time.

If the player who is it can't find anyone else (or, it's dinner time), they yell "Ally, Ally Oxen Free!", at which point all the remaining players return to base.

Variation:

To make the game a little more physical, once a player is found, they jump up and run. The player who is "it" tries to tag them before they can make it back to the base.

OTHER HIDE 'N' SEEK GAMES

Kick the Can

Played like Hide 'N' Seek, but instead of having a base, a tin can (the bigger the better) is placed in an open spot. The players who hide try to sneak up and kick over the can. The player who is "it" tries to tag the other players before they can kick the can.

Sardines

In this game, one person hides, and all the other players seek. If a player finds the one who is hiding, they hide with them. Pretty soon, everyone has disappeared! The last player left seeking gets to be the one to hide next time.

Ghost in the Graveyard

Best played at night! One person is the "ghost", and hides. All the other players seek. When a player finds the one who is hiding, they yell, "Ghost in the graveyard!" at which point the "ghost" jumps up and tries to tag the other players. When a player is tagged, they become a "ghost" and try to tag other players, too until all the players are caught. The last player tagged gets to be the "ghost" in the next round.
