First you need 10 to 20 pieces of rope about 3 feet long each. Tie a knot at the ends of each piece of rope. Next you put a tire in the middle of a field or yard, preferrably not cement. then all of the youth make a circle around the tire or object, each with a piece of rope to connect them together rather than holding hands. Next everyone starts pulling and tugging until someone loses their grip, then you throw the extra rope out and keep going until you only have one person left. There is one trick to the game, if someone touches the object in the middle of the circle (tire) they are out as well. This is a fun game to play, It wears people out that is for sure. Have fun!
