To begin, four corners (or general areas) of the room are marked from the numbers one to four.
One player is designated to be "It," or the "counter." This player sits in the middle of the room, closes his eyes, and counts to ten. The remaining players choose any one of the corners and quietly go and stand in that area. When the "It" player has finished counting, he calls out one of the numbers. All players who had chosen that corner or area are out of the game, and they sit down.
Then, "It" counts again and the remaining players move to a different corner.
The last person to still be in the game wins, and usually becomes the new "It."
If "It" calls out a corner containing no players, he either calls out another number right away or the players rotate to a new corner, you choose which version to play.
