100 Watt Walrus: FTFA: "He says he likes to go after people who haven't been "It" for a while. That includes Father Raftis, who has been harder to reach since he moved to Montana but who, as several players pointed out, is a sitting duck on Sundays."


He should try to negotiate a highlander-immortal clause in the agreement. No tagging on holy ground.

This is pretty cool and would have made a much less depressing ending to "Stand by Me".

Farce-Side: Glob forbid, but suppose the one who is "it" suddenly passes before tagging someone. How then does the game proceed?

A mysterious envelope delivered by a courier in the dead of night. Opening it reveals a piece of paper with only two words.

"You're it."

Supes: I hope they have no tag backs.

I would assume it's considered bad form to tag if the person being tagged knows you are present. Surprise would seem to be part of the fun.


My wife's family passes around an old bottle of beer from a camping trip her father and his brother took decades ago. The story goes that the beer was amazingly bad and each brother tried to sneak the last bottle into the other's bag before the trip was over to get rid of it.

Fast forward and now it gets passed back and forth between the next generation in ways that are continuing to execute in complexity. It has been hidden inside of a gourd that the target was asked to help cut up for dinner. It has been presented on a fancy cruise by the wait staff as desert. It has been presented as part of a wedding toast by the maid of honor to the target bride. Etc etc etc.

Standing unwritten rules are once you've received a pass you can't pass back to the person that gave it to you, and that you can't pass until some hazily defined period has passed after you got it (preventing serial passing at a single family event).

I'd guess they likely have similar unwritten rules about their tagging that make it more fun.

So, a link to a blog about the article, rather than a link to the article itself? Ok then.

Sounds like quite the game.

Which you just lost.
