Tag game that carries on until only 1 player is left uncaught


Hall/outdoors space


One player is chosen to be the catcher. The others start at one end of the playing area and must run to the other end while the catcher runs around trying to tag them. Anyone tagged is caught and must kneel down where they are caught. They are then an octopus and can reach out to tag players running past in subsequent rounds. Eventually there will be lots of octopuses (octopi?) all over the playing area who cannot move but can assist the catcher by reaching out and tagging the remaining players. The uncaught players run from one end to the other and must touch the wall to be "safe". When all the players reach the end they must wait for the command before running to the other "safe" end. The winner is the last person not caught.
