Blob tag is a simple, fun game that doesn’t require any equipment. You need about six or eight people to play. More than that is even better.
Here’s how: Choose one person to be the blob (in tag terms, the blob is “It”). The blob’s mission is simple: To expand. The blob does this by tagging other players. If tagged by the blob, you must join hands with her/him/them – in this way you become part of the blob. This new and improved blob seeks additional victims and can tag them with either of its two free hands. When a blob reaches a size of four it splits into two smaller blobs and continues its search for victims. The game is over when everyone is part of a blob.
I’m not sure what I like most about this game. It could be the fact that there aren’t winners or losers, but it’s more likely to be the gleeful feeling I get rushing around holding hands with my blob partners while my friends attempt to flee. It has been a long time since I was seven years old, but I’m pretty sure this is exactly what it feels like.
