Tig or Tag

Discussion in 'Personal' started by ResourceFinder, Feb 23, 2011.

  1. If you are playing chase do you play TIG or TAG?

    i play TIG but have just discovered that my daughter plays TAG!

    Is it a dialect thing?

    I played tick back home in Liverpool. Over here in Yorkshire the kids play Tig. They looked at me like I was mental when I said tick.
  6. We used to play Tiggy when I was younger... but always said... 'Tag, you're it!!'

    Neither Tig nor Tag...
    We played British Bulldog until it got banned
    Then Red Rover until that was also banned
    Briefly played Kiss Chase...until that got banned too!
    And then simply 'Catch'
  9. What sort of a wussy school did you go to?

    Tig, Bulldog, Double Dutch, and Two ball ... these were the staples of my Primary School life (with a bit of What Time is it Mr Wolf and jumping elastics thrown in for good measure)

    Never had the time to go kissing AB who would be round the back of the shed
  10. Note ... I almost put AB's full name and then I recalled that he is also a teacher now ... what if he were to read LoL
  11. We also called it 'tick' (Wigan/Manchester). Another variation, involving teams and bases, was 'skilly'. And one I can't quite remember that used a tin can was called 'tin can lurkey'.
  12. We played "chasies".

    For some reason we called it "had" and due to a large brick wall in the middle of our playground- "had around the wall"!

    We played Dobby - you had to dob (touch) people so they were "on".
    Dobby anywhere
    Dobby off-gorund
    Dobby little-man
    and any manner of Dobby-anything-you-want
  18. I also played tick as a child.
    Did anybody else have safe areas of the street / park etc where you couldn't be ticked that were known as 'barley', or is this solely a Scouse thing?
