Posh and less patriotic version of British Bulldog. One person started as the "catcher" and everyone else had to get from one side of playing area to the other. To catch someone you had not only to dob/tag/touch them, but to pin their shoulders to the ground by all means necessary for 3 seconds, thus increasing the potential for face-to-face spittle flecked mania from the more frustrated.

Without entering into the class divide, anyone running across a field screaming Tally Ho! is begging for beating round are way. Then again, I did sing "Great minds think alike, do they not, my friend?" without getting beaten up, so perhaps Comps were more tolerant than I remember.
