RED LIGHT / GREEN LIGHT
Red Light / Green Light (sometimes abbreviated as RLGL) is a game played mostly by children. The it person stands at one end of the playing field, with the rest of the players at the other end. It turns their back to the others and calls out “green light!” The players then run as fast as they can towards it. At any time, It can face the players, calling out “red light”, and the others must freeze in place. If anyone fails to stop, they are out or must return to the starting line. Other variations include calling out “yellow light” as a diversion, or where they must walk instead of run to It. Calling yellow light has no consequence. The first player to reach the person who is it wins and becomes it for the next round.
