Divide everyone into partners and have them stand together arm-in-arm (elbows locked together) in your play area. Divide one set of partners and make one player “it” and the other player the snipe (the victim, the damsel, whatever!) The snipe runs when you say go while “it” tries to tag him or her. The snipe can lock arms with anyone, and that person’s partner must disconnect and is now the snipe. They in turn can lock arms with another player sending yet another snipe out. When the snipe is finally caught, “it” and the snipe become partners and the last set of partners touched become “it” and the snipe.
