Preparation And Needed Materials
To play this game you will need a spacious area with no obstacles on the ground that players could trip over. Always remember to remove any sharp or unsafe objects around before playing to avoid someone stepping on them accidentally.
For the best results, you should play Infinite Tag outdoors or at least in a gym.
How To Play the Infinite Tag Game
Step 1: To begin Infinite Tag all players should start out scattered among the designated playing area. All players are considered equal, as there is no leader or director for this game.
Step 2: Once you begin all players will run around the playing area trying to tag other players.
Step 3: When you tag a player they will drop to the ground. Your mission at this point is to keep tagging other players and to avoid getting tagged by another player.
Step 4: If another player tags you then you must stop running and drop to the ground.
Step 5: When you drop to the ground all of the players that you had tagged previously will be released from their tag. They will be able to start playing again.
Step 6: At this point, you will need to keep an eye on the player who tagged you. Once somebody has tagged them you will be released from your tag and free to play again.
Step 7: This game is called Infinite Tag because it can go on forever. Most games end by choice of the players before anyone ends up winning. Since players are able to get back up it makes it more difficult for someone to win the game. However, if all players have dropped down the last player standing wins.
