How to prepare this

  1. A landmark such as a tree or lamppost is chosen as the base.

How to do this

  1. A player is chosen to be "it" and the rest run and hide while "it" counts to 40.
  2. "It" looks for the others, while they try to get to base without being seen.
  3. If a player gets to base without being seen, they shout "forty forty I'm free" and are then safe, waiting at base for the remainder of the game.
  4. In order to catch someone, "it" must see the person, run back, touch the base and say "forty forty I see [name]". If the "seen" player is behind or in an object, it must be specified; eg. "forty forty I see [name] behind that tree" while pointing at it.
  5. Players that are caught by "it" return to base.
  6. The last or first person to be caught by the end of the game is "it" in the next game.
  7. In some variants, a player reaching base can say "Release, one, two, three" or a similar to release one or all captured players. If the last player reaches the base without being seen, they can chant a variant of "Forty-forty, one, two, three, all saved", and all the players are freed.
