Uncle Sam
By: GSLC Posted On: 2019-12-06

Play:
Designate one player to be IT (“Uncle Sam”). All other players stand
on one side of a marked area with IT in the middle. The players chant
“Uncle Sam, Uncle Sam may we cross your waterland.” IT replies, “Not
unless you have the color --- (Red on, or brown eyes, or black hair, etc.).”
Anyone having that color gets a free pass across the area to the opposite side.
After the free passes have gone, those without the color, run across trying to avoid being tagged
by IT. Anyone that gets tagged joins IT in the middle and helps tag others on following passes.
The last one tagged gets to be IT in the next game.
