Mr. Bear
(from Sweden)

Thanks to Sally Garnaat for e-mailing me this game!

You'll need at lease three people, a place for "home", and the bear's den.

One person is Mr. Bear. He is trying to sleep in his den. The other players sneak up to Mr. Bear and whisper, "Mr. Bear, are you awake?" Mr. Bear pretends not to hear them. Then the players yell, "MR. BEAR, ARE YOU AWAKE?" This makes Mr. Bear furious! He chases them all and tries to catch them before they reach home, which is the safe place. Everyone tagged by the bear before reaching home becomes Mr. Bear's cubs. They go back to the den with Mr. Bear. When the remaining players come back to wake up Mr. Bear again, the cubs help Mr. Bear catch them. When everyone has been caught, Mr. Bear picks someone else to take his place.
