Sharks And Minnows
It was usually played in the pool, a person would get out of the pool
and stand on the side with his/her back facing the other players(usually
2 or more players were needed)the players would all be lined up on one
side of the pool, like a
race.A category was then picked, like kinds of dogs, colors, kinds
of trees, etc. Each player would pick a kind of dog, or whatever
the category was. When everyone was ready the person outside of the
pool would start saying different kinds of trees, or dogs, or whatever.
Like if the category was colors I'd start saying orange, red, green, etc.
When the color that the player picked was said, he/she would go to
the other side of the pool as quietly as they could (more than one person
would pick the same color sometimes). If the person outside of the
pool would hear the player(s) swimming he/she would dive or jump into the
pool and try to tag(touch) the person before he/she got to the other side.
If the player was not tagged the original person outside of the pool would
go back out and continue saying colors. If the player was tagged,
he/she would then take the original person's place and start the game over
or continue saying different colors. Once all the players got to
the other side, the game would start over.
Another way to play is by having the person be in the middle of the
pool, facing the players, with his/her eyes closed.
