Miscellaneous Physical Play Jailbreak

Hiding Game and Physical Play

Jailbreak involves a big group of participants. To begin, participants gather in circle and engage in the counting out process of '21' to determine who is 'In' (also referred to as the policeman). 'In' counts to 30 or 50 while other participants disperse and hide. 'In' then proceeds to find and 'tip' participants, who have to go to jail. The jail may be a tree or around the netball ring. A participant who remains free may go to the jail, 'tip' the occupants and free them. A new participant takes over as 'In' when the original 'In' retires and the game resumes.
