Tig is the game we most often play. The way in which we play it is, we get a crowd of eighteen or twenty and we form a circle. One girl finds who is to be the hunter by means of a little verse.
Whoever would be the hunter would have to run after all of us trying to "tig" someone, and that one will try to "tig" some other one and so on until the game is over.
These are the verses we say: -
"Trimity Tromety matty go shabo labo,
Turn lock fly go,
Dan ban runaway".
