Virus is a simple children's game. It's a variant of the game Blind man's bluff.


There is no additional equipment required.


One player is selected to be the "virus". He closes his eyes and wanders around the room. If he can touch any other player, that player is infected as well and helps the virus to spread the disease; of course, he has to close his eyes as well.
