"Hide-and-Seek" (also known as "Hide-and-go-seek") is a game that's usually played with a few children. The person who's "It" covers their eyes and counts to a number decided upon in advance. Meanwhile, the other players hide. Once the Seeker counts to the predetermined number they say:

Hide-and-Seek - American Children's Songs - The USA - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image

Game Instructions

Then the Seeker goes and finds all of the "Hiders". Whoever is found last is the next person to be "It".
