My favorite make-believe game has got to be Lava Tag. It is a fairly simple game, but if you have enough people playing it is always tons of fun no matter how old you are. The rules are easy to learn. One person is “it” and they have to run around and try to tag people, just like in normal tag. But there is a catch. You can’t tough the ground. This that would be counted as ground are the lowest level of the playing arena. Usually it is grass or dirt or wood chips. All of these things are considered to be lava. This twist added to the game of tag adds a lot of different skill requirements. For instance, tag just requires you being able to run. But in lava tag you have to have a lot of upper body strength, and be able to climb and jump.
When I was in elementary school I used to play this game everyday during recess. There would always be about ten people playing, so we never ran out of fun.
BUT my favorite game of Lava Tag that I every played was when Mary, Tim, and a few other people. I can’t remember everybody who was there, so you will have to ask Tim about it.
I highly recommend you playing this game no matter how old you are. It is really simple, and fun for the whole family. I might even try to convince everyone at the 24 Hour Blog Day party to go outside and play Lava Tag with me. I doubt we will have much extra time for anything like that, especially before it gets dark. Whether we play today or not I hope that anyone, and everyone reading this will be willing, and wanting to give this game a chance.
