Rules

Specific Details and Rules:

Players begin by drawing straws / rolling dice, etc. to decide who starts the game as a Seeker. It is advisable to have no more than 1 starting Seeker for every 10 Players.

At the start of the game, the Seekers must give the other Players a minute to 5 minute head start. The goal of the Players is to remain uncaught while the goal of the Seekers are to catch as many escaped Players as possible. If a Player is hit by a stream of water, that Player then joins the Seeker group. On the other hand, if a Seeker is hit, that Player must return to the starting point before continuing play.

Seekers win if all Players are converted. The escaped Players win if at least one Player remains un-tagged by the end of the time limit.
