Location: standing in a circle
Equipment: none
Duration: arbitrary
Preparation: none

Follow or flee is a simple active game while standing in a circle. It is best for about 10 to 20 participants.


You don't need any equipment for that game.


The players are standing in a circle, one person (A, the tagger) is walking around it. He touches any other player (B) and gives one of the two possible commands: either "follow" or "flee". Both have to run around the circle once; the first one to reach the previous standing position of B, stays there, the other is the tagger for the next round. When the command "follow" is given, B has to run in the same direction as A; after the command "flee", B has to run in the opposite direction.
