Game description

This game is a variation of the popular running game "Who's afraid of the black man?" Like you would play this game outside the pool, you do it inside as well. One player stands on one side of the pool; all the other ones are on the other. Now, one player calls, "Who is afraid of white shark?" All the other ones scream back no one. And the shark replies: “But what if he comes?” – “We swim away.” Immediately everybody dives into the water and tries to get to the other side without getting caught. Every caught kid becomes a shark himself, which makes it harder and harder for the others to escape.


The winner is the player who did not get caught at the end of the game
