A wall is designated to serve as a goal. The youngest player is touched upon a part of his body (shoulder, head, arms, belly) by his comrades, by turns. One says to him at each time tapt. When all have done this, they flee and try to go and touch the wall without reuniting. The one who is caught up with and touched takes the place of the patient and the games begins anew.
