Catch The Dragon's Tail

This traditional Chinese game is great fun for the playground. You will need a large group of children - at least 10, but the more the merrier!

Catch The Dragon's Tail game

Age: Any

The children all form a line with their hands on the shoulders of the child in front. The first in line is the dragon's head, the last in line is the dragon's tail.

The dragon's head then tries to catch the tail by manoeuvring the line around so that he can tag the last player. All the players in the middle do their best to hinder the dragon's head. Don't let the line break!

When the head catches the tail, the tail player takes the front position and becomes the new dragon's head. All the other players move back one position.
