Pairs' tag is a tag game.


You don't need any equipment to play that game.


Two tagger are chosen. They hold each other's hand and may only run and tag together. After the starting signal, they try to tag the other players. When they are successful, the third poison joins their chain. Then, the three of them hunt together, but only the outer two may actually tag. When they are successful and their chain consists of four players, they split into two pairs. Both pairs then tag independently.
