Blindfolded Games Ten Steps

( Blindfolded, Choreographed, Hide and Seek, Hunting )

This is a game of hide and seek and like all such games is best played where there is plenty of space and many hiding places. The distinctive feature of this game is the peculiar limitation put on the opportunity to hide which may even free the blinder from his task. The one who is It or hunter blinds his eyes and counts ten while the other players run for hiding places. As soon as the one who is blinding says “Ten ” the players must all stand motionless whereever they happen to be while he turns at once to look for them. Any player whom he sees moving must come back to the goal and start over again. The hunter repeats this five times and any player not entirely out of sight the fifth time the hunter turns must change places with him the original hunter becoming a spectator of the game. Having called “Ten ” and turned to look for moving players five times the hunter (or the one taking his place as explained above) counts one hundred to give the players time to reach final hiding places and the game proceeds as in regular I Spy.
