Everyone chooses a partner, links elbows and holds still. These people are the obstacles. One pair becomes 'it' and 'chasee' (They do not link elbows). 'It' tries to tag the 'chasee'. The 'chasee' runs away.

The 'chasee' can link elbows with an obstacle. The person on the opposite end of the obstacle, breaks off and becomes the 'chasee'. If 'it' catches the 'chasee' then they switch roles.
