Players stand in pairs and become "it" if the current "it" joins their pair
How To Play
All players find a partner and link elbows with them. These pairs spread out around the playing area.
The facilitator selects one pair and within that pair selects one person to be "it" and the other person to be the "chaser".
The "it" person runs around throughout the pairs. The "it" person can, at any time, link up with any pair. If the link person joins a pair, the person on the pair who the "it" member did not link with must separate from the chain and now be "it".
If the "it" person is ever tagged, they become the chaser and the other person becomes the "it". That other person is then free to join a pair, causing another player to split off and be the new "it".
Game lasts until facilitator says it's over.
It can be helpful for the facilitator to watch carefully and manage potentially confusing situations, specifically when the "it" person thinks they have linked up and the "chaser" thinks they have tagged them just before linking (creating two people who think they are "it").
