Between 3 and 30

Equipment:
No equipment required

Set Up:
No prior set-up required

How to Play:
Choose one player to be the "traffice light." The remaining players are the cars. The traffic light stands about 20 to 25 feet away from the cars facing away so the traffic light cannot see the cars. The traffic light then yells GREEN LIGHT and the cars begin to run toward the traffic light. But the traffic light may say RED LIGHT at any time which means the cars must all come to an immediate stop. Any car that moves after RED LIGHT is called must go back to the starting line. The first car to touch the traffic light gets to be the traffic light for the next round.

Winner:
Non-competitive
