Game description

In the beginning, decide who will be the fish. All other kids form a circle around him. They all hold hands. Now the fish tries to jump over their hands or dive out in any way possible. However, the circle kids have to do their best not to let him escape. Slowly they can draw the circle smaller and smaller until it becomes impossible for the fish to get out.


The fish wins the game if he succeeds to escape.
