A story from earlier this year – eight buddies have been playing tag for the last 23 years. They’re in their 40’s, so the rules are slightly tweaked: the game is played only in the month of February, & has no geographical constraints. Hilariously ingenious!
The game they play is fundamentally the same as the schoolyard version: One player is “It” until he tags someone else. But men in their 40s can’t easily chase each other around the playground, at least not without making people nervous, so this tag has a twist. There are no geographic restrictions and the game is live for the entire month of February. The last guy tagged stays “It” for the year.
