History

Touch tag is a game that is part of the memories of many people, it is not surprising that a wonderful autumn day is dedicated to it. Little is known about its existence: it is believed that it happened in Roman times and became a traditional game for children. The organization does not require any equipment, scoring and other things. Meaning: a person is chosen in turn, who must catch up with the participants and touch them in order to take them out of the game.

In some educational institutions, hobby is prohibited. The game is quite active, so children can get injured – before the ban, many students ran into trouble. However, this does not mean that it is dangerous – just follow the safety rules. Its rules in each of the regions may vary, but basically they are universal for everyone.

Interesting facts

It is curious that:

  • The game has no time limits! The factor depends on the participants: you can play for only 10 minutes or endlessly;
  • sometimes the team agrees to add a “zest” and comes up with unusual rules – this is allowed if everyone agrees;
  • there are no age restrictions – everyone can have fun, regardless of the year of birth;
  • there are many variations of the game – learn about them to try something new.

How to celebrate

The holiday comes early in the morning and is practically knocking on the door! All that is required is to gather friends and go outside to enjoy the outdoor game. Activities give the muscles the necessary load, which has a beneficial effect on health. Get together more often and combine business with pleasure!
