How To Play Manhunt

When you have a group of people and regular tag just gets to be a bit boring, why not try Manhunt? Using the same basic rules as tag, Manhunt is a simple game that anyone can play, and the entire group will get to enjoy, not just one person who is "It". When playing Manhunt, the entire group can hunt and be hunted, and winning is much more of a challenge.

To begin playing Manhunt, all you need is a group of people and plenty of room. Make sure you get as many people as possible, because the larger the number of people, the longer the game, and the longer the game, the more fun can be had. As far as space goes, make sure you have plenty of room to move around in, because once the game begins, the more places to run and hide you have, the more interesting the game will get.

After you have your people and space picked, it's time to move on to the actual game. Just like in tag, you pick one person to be "It," and that person is called the "Hunter" or "Manhunter." That person then closes their eyes and counts, just like in normal tag, and all the other people, who are called "fugitives," hide. After a short count, the "Hunter" then searches out the "Fugitives," and each "Fugitive" caught, becomes another "Hunter," and searches for the remaining "fugitives." The player who is the last to be tagged becomes the winner, and "Hunter" for the next game.

Though this is the most common method of playing Manhunt, there are also other popular variations. One of the more popular variations involves breaking up into two different teams, called "Team A" and "Team B." Members of "Team A" try to capture all the members of "Team B" before time runs out, and put them into their bases, and vice versa. Teammates can be freed from their opponent's bases by being tagged by a member from their own team, and the player with the most players from the other side's team in their base at the end of the game wins.

This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to way to play Manhunt, and there are a million different ways to have fun with the game, which you'll just have to discover for yourself.
