Game Instructions

"אחת, שתיים, שלוש, דג מלוח" (Akhat, shetayum, shalosh, dag maloo'akh) is played with a group of people.

The group stands on one end of the playing area, at the starting line. The person who is "It" stands at the other end, at the finish line, with his back to the group. He says, "אחת, שתיים, שלוש, דג מלוח" (Akhat, shetayum, shalosh, dag maloo'akh). Then he quickly turns around to face the group.

When he is facing away from the group, the people in the group run towards the finish line. Meanwhile, as soon as the one who's "It" finishes saying, "אחת, שתיים, שלוש, דג מלוח" (Akhat, shetayum, shalosh, dag maloo'akh), he quickly turns around to face the group. The group must freeze. Anyone who is caught moving has to go back to the starting line.

The game continues like this until someone reaches the finish line. That person wins and is "It" in the next round.
