The tag among the 10 men, now in their 40s living in the Pacific Northwest according to ESPN, started when they attended Gonzaga Preparatory School. It was resurrected when they graduated as a way to keep in touch. It even has a formal “tag participation agreement.”
There are three rules added into the agreement to the traditional play of tag, according to Patrick “Patty” Schultheis.
- The game will only take place during the month of February.
- There are no tag backs (retagging the person who just tagged you).
- If you are asked if you’re it, you have to answer truthfully.
