This game is for 45 or more players, and should be played in a very big field.

The object of this game is to walk past Mrs. or Mr. Fox without being caught.

How to play

  1. Choose a person to be the Fox, and have everyone else line up on the starting line.
  2. The Fox will stand 300 feet away with her back turned. You'll need good hearing for this!
  3. The rest of the players will ask "What time is it, Mrs. (or Mr.) Fox?"
  4. If Fox answers a time like 31:00, the players take 31 steps forward. If she answers something like 215:00, then the players take 215 steps forward, and so on. Players can take any size step they want.
  5. If Fox says "Time to eat you!" she turns around and chases everyone back to the start.
  6. If Fox catches someone, he or she will take over as the Fox.


  • Since Rototime is based on a circle, set a part of the circle to be both the start and finish line, and when a time is called, have the players walk that many degrees around the circle.
