This backyard game is called hide-and-seek and the first thing you need to do is create a playing area. Once you’ve created the boundaries everyone who’s playing needs to decide who’s going to be “it” first. The player who is “it” starts counting down from 60 and once they are at zero they begin looking for the other players. 

Every other player who’s not “it” hides somewhere in the playing area and at least one part of their body must be showing at all times. The player who’s “it” searches for the other players and once they find one they tag them and that player is now also “it”. The game is played until everyone is found and the last player to get tagged is now “it” for the next round.
