name given to the other players.
Then the "Fish" runs over, and back from each side of the square while the Fisherman tries to catch them as they pass.
If any of the"Fish" are caught inside the small square where the Fisherman is, they will have to help the Fisherman in catching the rest of the "Fish".
When all the fish are caught then the game is finished.
Another game which was played by every child was "Tig".
The girl on which twenty fell was first to have the "Tig".
The she hunted the girls until she tipped one of them.
Whatever part of the girl that is tipped she will have to keep her hand on her until she tips another girl.
This is a very exciting and amusing game.
