This game works best if there are a lot of participants, lot of space and good hiding spaces. Define the area of the game. Select one participant to be the “monkey”. The monkey must catch the others by touching them and saying “monkey”. When caught the monkey leads the caught person to a prison. You can be freed by the prison. You are not allowed to move away from the prison before you are freed, but you are allowed to call for help. The monkey is allowed to have more than one prison, as many as he wants. It could be a room, as storage space, a tree, under a table. When caught 3 times you becomes the monkey. Game is over when everyone is a monkey.
