Streets and Alleys

Streets and Alleys

This is ideal for an outdoor Pack meeting.  You need three people, one for the Fox, one for the Hound and one for the caller.  The rest of the group are streets and alleys.  The group forms several squares by having 4 or more lines standing hand to hand facing North (STREETS) and 4 or more lines facing East (ALLEYS). The Fox and the Hound start at opposite corners.  When the Caller calls “STREETS” then all the people facing North stand with their arms stretched horizontally.  When “ALLEYS” are called the “STREETS” put their arms down to their sides and the “ALLEYS” put their arms up. The object of the game is for the Hound to catch the Fox.  The Fox and Hound can only run through clear lines.  They cannot run through someone’s arms.  It is best to call the game at a fairly fast pace.  When the Hound has caught the Fox, then both choose the next Fox and Hound.  If the Hound doesn’t catch the Fox after a reasonable length of time, then the Caller can stop the game and call up 2 more players.
