The Bhattatharis

By reciting one Hare Krishna mantra a player is chosen to be the Bhattathari. All of the other players are villagers. The players choose one spot to be the Bhattatharis camp, and another spot about fifty feet (15m) away to be the villager’s village. The Bhattathari stands inside his camp, and the villagers run up close to him chanting Hare Krishna. Then they run away. The Bhattathari tries to catch them. Any villager who is caught by the Bhattathari becomes a Bhattathari too and must help capture the remaining villagers. When a villager is caught, the others go back to their village and the Bhattatharis go back to their camp. Then the villagers come out again and run chanting to Bhattatharis camp. The last villager to be caught is the winner.
