The Serpent's Tail
This is a Japanese game, and is played this way. All the children form a line, each resting his hands on the shoulders of the player in front of him. One child is chosen out, and is called the 'catcher.' The first child of the line, or 'serpent,' is called the 'head,' and the last one, the 'tail.' The 'catcher' stands about three feet from the 'head' and when someone gives a signal he tries to catch the 'tail' without pushing anyone, or breaking through the line. The children forming the 'body' defend the 'tail,' by moving about in any way they choose, but the line must never be broken, as the 'tail' is considered caught if it is. When the 'tail' is caught, the 'catcher' becomes 'head,' and the 'tail' is then 'catcher,' the last child in the line being 'tail,' and the game goes on as before.
