Run Run Run
Oh...I played that when I was young. I didn't know the origin...Run run run is a singing game played originally by the kids on the Monochrome section of The Station, but it has spread and is now played by all children on The Station. Children also play it on planets with trade and other agreements with The Station. Many of the children living in Monochrome have relatives who work as Extractors, and thus they are the ones the most aware of what is going on at the planet of Areu. Many of the people working as Extractors today were people who played this game while young.
BackgroundThe planet of Areu is overrun by Monsters, however, the planet has a lot of resources that The Station needs. They send the Extractors to the planet to retrieve these resources. The Extractors live on the planet for an extended period of time, fighting for survival. After a natural phenomenon that sometimes happens over the only settlement on the planet, the monsters stop attacking for a while.
GameThis game is usually played in parks or on school yards. The game is played in an enclosed area, usually enclosed with chalk pens. The size of the area depends on how many kids are playing and the size that the kids want to use. The minimum amount of players is usually 5, and the minimum size is usually 3x3m. One of the kids plays the monster. Who is the monster can be decided in any way. The other kids are the people. The monster stands in the middle of the enclosed area, and the other kids stand around the monster at the edges of the enclosed area. They all count down, and then the "people" start singing this:
Run run run The monsters are a’ comin' Run run run The monsters are a’ comin' Run run run The monsters are a’ comin' Look look look The skies are full of colors, stop.When the monster touches a "person" they will also become a monster. If all the "people" have become monsters before they reach the ending, the monsters win, but if the "people" manage to sing to the end, they win.
