Game

Mat Tag
Wrestlers lay on the mat in pairs. One person STANDING is the TAGGER and another STANDING is the person being chased. If the person being chased lays on the mat next to a pair they are SAFE and now the person on the opposite end of the threesome is the one being chased and must stand up and run for safety. If the TAGGER tags the person being chased, that person then becomes the TAGGER, and the former TAGGER must now run for safety.
