Light – No light
· Evening game, outdoors
· Equipment: flashlight
· Formation: scatter
The game is best in a large open wooded area.
Players line up at one end of the playing area, while one player, holding a flashlight, stands at the other end.
The object of the game is to move from one end of the playing area to the other, past the person holding the flashlight.
The player with the flashlight stands with his back to the other players. Every five seconds, he turns around, turns on the light and scans the area for three seconds. If a moving player gets caught by the flashlight beam, he has to return to the starting end. Stationary players may remain where they are.
The first person to successfully move past the ‘flasher’ becomes the light for the next round.
Variation: The player with the flashlight keeps the flashlight on, and continuously scans the playing area. Stalking players dress in dark clothes. If stalking players are caught, they must return to the starting end.
