Those games you listed are fun and usually get good participation. Another
fun game is Capture the Flag. We play that a lot and the boys really enjoy
it. One game to NOT play: RED ROVER. This game has the highest rate of
serious injury of any of the popular "school yard" games. In some states
all that is needed to prove negligence on your part, should someone get hurt,
is that you were playing the game, despite any rules added or strict super-
vision of the play. For a really good list of games, check out REC.GAMES.
