Game Instructions

Two people hold hands, putting their arms up in the air to form a "bridge". The other players pass under the bridge. Whoever is under the bridge on the last syllable of the last word "passe-ra" gets caught in the arms of the 2 people forming the bridge.

After that, there are different endings for the game:

1. For young children: The people caught go on the side until there are only two people left. They form the new "bridge" and the game starts all over again.

2. For older children: The two people forming the bridge decide beforehand to be "a rose and a violet" or "an orange and a lemon" (or any other names like "a dog and a cat")… Then they ask the person caught to choose one of those things, the person caught answers secretly and it's told secretly who they should go behind. When there are no players left (or only two players left), the players of each row hold the player before them at the waist with both hands and pull. The row that pulls their person away first wins (or the longest row is the winner) and the 2 last players become the new bridge.
