A step-by-step guide to play the game


6 team players enter into a 20 square foot area (a closed room or sports-field outside). One of the players wears a colored t-shirt (or a 'COVID-19 virus costume') to indicate he/she is the COVID-19 positive person. This player is blindfolded. The objective of the player will be to infect another player during the game. The player can infect another player by:

- Approach a player (come closer to a player within 1 meter of distance)

- Through contact (tag another player)


- There is 1 spot in one corner designated as a mask area where 1 player at a time can rest for 15 seconds without being infected

- There is 1 spot designated as an isolation area where 1 player at a time can go for 15 seconds to avoid being infected

- Once a player is at the isolation spot or mask area, he/she must stay there for the entire 15 seconds and cannot leave the spot.


The 5 players on the field need to communicate and coordinate with each in order to avoid being infected.

This is a really nice idea to help the players understand how contagious the COVID-19 virus is.
