Brief Description

Students pretend they prey that are being stalked by a predator. They wait in hiding in the best camouflaged habitat they can find. The first person to touch a base without being seen by the predator wins. Being seen means being eaten!

This Is How You Play

  1. A home base is designated
  2. "IT" is the predator
  3. Everyone else is prey and they must hide in a well camouflaged spot while the predator counts to 30 (Prey want to find a spot that their clothes with blend the best)
  4. After counting, the predator calls out the people that s/he sees. Anyone seen is eaten.
  5. Anyone who touches the base without the predator seeing them, wins the game and becomes IT.
