Chase and Catch Games Hill Dill

( Chase and Catch, Team Wars and Battle )

Two parallel boundary lines are drawn from thirty to fifty feet apart or the game is often played between the curbings of a street which serve as boundaries. One player is chosen to be It and stands in the center. The other players stand in two equal parties beyond the boundary lines one party on each side. The center player calls out “Hill dill come over the hill ” The other players then exchange goals and as they run across the open space the one in the center tries to tag them. Any who are tagged assist him thereafter in tagging the others.

This game is not well adapted to very large numbers of players as it brings two opposing parties running toward each other in the exchange of goals. It is especially suited to conditions where a very wide central field lies between the goals thus giving opportunity for the players to scatter.
