The most important indoor game we play is High Gates. About six are needed to play it right. Five of those must stand around in a ring and one of them must stand and close his eyes while all the others run around. Then he tries to catch someone and the person whom he tries to catch runs in and out under the hands. The person after him must keep the same track until he catches him. Then the next person must stand inside in the ring and so the game goes on until everyone has got his own turn.
