This is a variation on 'Everyone's It'
Everyone is 'it'. When you are tagged you put a hand on that spot and keep trying to tag other people without moving that hand. If you are tagged a second time, then you must put your other hand on that spot. You are not 'out' yet though. You continue to tag other people (with your elbows) until you are tagged a third time. Then you sit down.
A variation on this, will allow some one to be the Doctor and that person will go around and rescue the people who are sitting down. Once the Doctor has been tagged three times, the game is over.
