How to Play Manhunt

By eHow Hobbies, Games & Toys Editor

Manhunt is a large-scale game of hide-and-seek. It can be played in any outdoor area with definable borders, day or night.

Setting Up

Select an area appropriate for the number of players. A quarter of an acre per player is a practical guide.

Establish boundaries.

Establish a signal for the hunt to begin - car horn, air horn, or loud yell.

Choose whether you wish to start with a single hunter or two or three hunters for a large group.

Choose a time delay for players to hide before the hunt begins.

Select a method for tagging players. Either the hunter tags players or just calls out their names and hiding places.

Playing the Game

Give all hunted players a set amount of time to run and hide.

Signal the start of the hunt.

Begin searching the area if you are a hunter.

Become a new hunter if you are found.

End the game when all hidden players have been found.
