184 The Book of Indoor and Outdoor Games
Blind Tag is so called because the pursuer, commonly known as " It," is known only to the person who "tagged" him, and who keeps up a feint of trying to catch others, to mislead the rest. A sense of mystery is the attraction of this form of the game, and the additional excitement of seeing a possible enemy player who approaches near enough to touch one.
Stag-tag is a merry variety of the game that is popular with girls and little children. The "It" is called the "Stag," who, when successful in touching another player, appropriates him or her as an ally, and hand in hand they pursue the others, until a third joins them and then a fourth, forming a line, until all the players have joined the chain.
