Unleash the fun with Tail Tag! In this exhilarating game, children tuck a ‘tail’ into the back of their shorts and run around, attempting to snatch the tails of other players while safeguarding their own. The last one with their tail intact emerges as the victor.

Setup and Equipment

  • Space: Ensure you have a safe play area, ideally around 5 square meters.


  • You’ll require 8 tails and, for added fun, a prize bag like the Bazinga’s prize bag for the winner.

Safety Tips

  • Ensure the play area is free of obstacles to prevent tripping.
  • Tails should be tucked loosely. Ensure no player ties them too tightly.
  • Set clear boundaries to avoid players wandering off or crashing into dangerous zones.

Game Rules

  1. Each player starts with a tail tucked into their shorts or waistband.
  2. On the call “go,” players try to capture others’ tails without losing their own.
  3. If a player loses their tail, they’re out of the game.
  4. The last person with their tail intact wins and gets to choose a prize!

Alternative Game Ideas

  • Team Play: Convert the game into a team sport. Form teams of two for a collaborative and less competitive variant.
  • Time Limit: Set a timer. The player with the most tails at the end of the time is the winner.
