How to play Mystery Number ?
The players form a circle around a hunter (It). The hunter chooses a number that he keeps in his head. During this time, the players turn around him in rhythm, counting their steps out loud. The distance between the center of the circle where the hunter is located and the circle formed by the children is 2 meters. You can of course adapt this distance according to the age of the children.
When the number kept in mind by the hunter is pronounced by the group of children, the hunter then goes to catch his prey. But be careful, he has only 30 seconds to try to reach the maximum number of children. Once this time has elapsed, the children who have been taggeed also become hunters. They will then stand together in the center of the circle, choose a new mystery number and when this number is called out, they will go together to catch new prey.
The game continues in this way until there is only one child left, who is then the winner and becomes the hunter in the next round.
