Rød-Gul-Grøn-Stop – Denmark

Rød-Gul-Grøn-Stop Europe Denmark Running around game No props N.o.p: 4 +
One player stands facing the wall with his back turned to the rest. The other boys are standing somewhere 10 metres away. They try to be first to sneak up on him and touch the wall without his seeing them to move. The player is supposed to say the words: RødGulGrønStop quickly, and almost at the same time as he has mentioned the last word ‘stop’, he immediately turns round. As he turns round, the other (moving) boys ‘freeze’, for if he sees anyone moving even a hand, he sends that boy back to the starting line to begin again. He then turns back to the wall, and everyone resumes their advance. Then the same procedure will be repeated. The player who is first to reach the one in front takes his place in the next game.
