BLOODY MURDER

ONE PLAYER WAS "IT". HE WOULD LEAN AGAINST A TREE, AND
COUNT TO 500 BY 5'S.
EVERYONE ELSE WOULD HIDE. WHEN THE COUNTING WAS DONE "IT" WOULD
SHOUT "READY OR NOT HERE I COME" AND WANDER AWAY FROM THE
TREE (WHICH WAS GOAL- THE SAFETY ZONE)
THE HIDING PLAYERS WOULD WAIT FOR A GOOD CHANCE TO RUN TO GOAL
WITHOUT BEING TAGGED BY "IT".
WHEN A PLAYER RAN FOR THE TREE OR "IT" SPOTTED SOMEONE HIDING,
THEY WOULD YELL "BLOODY MURDER", AND EVERYONE WOULD RUN FOR GOAL.
"IT" TAGGED SOMEONE ELSE WHO BECAME "IT" FOR THE NEXT ROUND.
