One person, known as 'the guard', stands next to a lamp post called the 'home base'.
The rest of the group 'run out' while the guard closes their eyes and counts to 50.
The guard has to spot people and touch them before anyone can touch the home base.
Any person that is touched by the guard is out and cannot help others.
Anyone who makes it to Home Base can help the others by distracting the guard.
You had to catch people by touching 'base' and saying 'forty fourth see then the persons name'. the winners touched 'base' without being caught.

We played a similar game called Sticky Glue, where once you were caught you had to stand still until someone who was still free could touch you and release you.

Because this is what you had to shout when you reached the home base. Alternatively you could shout "God save all" which freed everyone caught before you. The first person to be caught that wasn't freed was the next catcher.

The guard or chaser looks for people and when they spot them runs back to the post and shouts loudly "mob mob the persons name 1 2 3" at the same time the person who has been spotted can try to get to the post first and shout "save myself 1 2 3"
