Tag (also known as tip, it, touch, tig, tiggy, tick, chasing, chasemaster, chasey, cops and robbers) is an informal playground game that usually involves one or more players attempting to "tag" other players by touching them with an object, usually their hands. Played throughout the world,[1] tag is inherently simple — most forms require neither teams, nor scores, nor sports equipment — but it may be made more complex with various rule modifications.
