Freeze tag – game rules

By: Dennis B. B. Taylor


Hey there! Have you ever played freeze tag? It’s a super fun game that my friends and I love to play. Let me tell you all about it!

So, here’s how it works. One person is chosen to be “it,” and they have to run around and try to touch the other players. But here’s the catch – when “it” manages to touch someone, that person has to freeze in place! They can’t move until another player comes along and tags them to unfreeze them. It’s like they’re stuck in ice!

Now, the goal of the game is for “it” to freeze everyone before they can unfreeze each other. It can be quite a challenge, especially if the other players work together to unfreeze their frozen friends. It’s all about strategy and quick thinking!

What I love most about freeze tag is that it’s a game that gets everyone involved. You have to be on your toes, always ready to freeze or unfreeze someone. And it’s not just about running and touching people – you have to be aware of your surroundings and come up with creative ways to outsmart your opponents.

Another thing I really enjoy about freeze tag is the element of surprise. You never know when “it” is going to catch you and freeze you in place. It keeps you on edge and adds a thrill to the game. Plus, there’s always that exhilarating moment when you manage to escape being frozen just in the nick of time!

I can’t recommend freeze tag enough. It’s a game that combines physical activity, strategy, and a whole lot of fun. So gather your friends, find a wide open space, and get ready for an adventure of freezing and unfreezing! Trust me, you won’t be able to resist the excitement of freeze tag – it’s truly a one-of-a-kind game that guarantees a great time.

If you wanna switch up the classic game of tag, give freeze tag a try! It’s a fun twist that’ll have you running, dodging, and tagging. It’s perfect for field days and outdoor events when you want to get moving and have a blast.

Here’s how you set it up: Depending on how many people are playing, you’ll need 1-3 players to be “it.” If there are less than 10 players, just 1 person can be “it.” If there are 10-20 players, add another person as “it.” And if there are 20 or more players, add a third person as “it.” Then, set a timer for about 5 minutes.

Now, let’s get into the gameplay! The players who are “it” have to chase after the other players and try to tag them. But here’s the twist: when someone gets tagged, they have to freeze in place and can’t move until someone else comes and “unfreezes” them. This adds an extra level of excitement and strategy to the game.

The goal for the players who are not “it” is to avoid getting tagged and frozen. They can dodge, run, and hide to stay away from the taggers. It’s a fast-paced game that’ll keep you on your toes!

Remember, the game is timed, so try to tag as many people as you can before the time runs out. And if you get frozen, don’t worry! Just stay still and hope that a teammate comes to save you.

Freeze tag is a great way to have fun, get some exercise, and challenge your friends. So the next time you’re looking for an outdoor game to play, give freeze tag a whirl!

Freeze tag - game rules

When the game starts, us who are “it” have to try to “freeze” the other players by tagging them. When we tag someone, we shout “Freeze!” and that person has to stop wherever they are. It’s super fun if we freeze them in funny positions!

The other players need to dodge and run away from us to avoid getting frozen. And guess what? They can also unfreeze the already-frozen players! All they have to do is tag them and shout “Unfreeze!”


The game can end in two ways:

  1. We, the ones who are “it,” manage to freeze everyone.
  2. The time we set for the game runs out.

Hey there! I’m a writer who absolutely loves getting people pumped about playing games and having a blast. For three whole years, I ran an awesome pub crawl, where I got to play drinking games with rad folks like you nearly every single day. Plus, I come from a huge family that’s obsessed with games, so it’s safe to say that games are just a part of who I am.

But that’s not all! I’m also totally hooked on traveling the world and jamming out to music. In fact, I’ve even started my own personal blogs where I share all my wild adventures and rockin’ tunes. They’re my way of spreading the love for exploring new places and discovering awesome bands.
