Game description

A popular game which is often played in nursery schools. The group stands on one side of the playing field. A volunteer stands in the wall on the opposite side and turns away from the group shouting "oxen at the mountain - turn around!". The group then tries to run over to the other side. When the word ""around" is said the caller shouts out the names of all players who were still moving forwards at this point. These must take a few steps back. The first player to reach the opposite wall is the new ox.


no scoring, the fun is important
