Athpudi Paha – Sri Lanka

Athpudi Paha Asia Sri Lanka Exerting game No props N.o.p.:10
One boy stands 20 meters in front of a group with his back facing the group.
He starts saying some lines and is clapping his hands while the group behind him may only move forwards when he is loudly saying his words. When he stops talking , he immediately turns his head and looks at the group who might still move: everybody must ‘freeze’ by then. When a boy is still moving, he will be summoned to go back to his starting position.
The moving group is coming closer to the talking boy,then the in front the running boy touches the still talking boy in front of the group, but must run back immediately and fast with the whole group to theirs starting position. If no-one is tagged by him, the whole procedure restarts.
