- Not to be confused with QAGS Cops & Robbers
Cops and Robbers, sometimes called 'team tag', 'Chase', 'Police and Thief', Prisoner's Base, Jailbreak or 'Manhunt' has players split into two teams: cops (the 'it' team who are in pursuit) and robbers (the team being chased). The cops 'arrest' the robbers by tagging, and put them in 'jail'. Robbers can stage a jailbreak by tagging one of the prisoners without getting tagged themselves. The game ends if all the robbers are in jail. In a variant, the robbers have 5 minutes to hide before being hunted, and only one jailbreak may be allowed per robber.
The game is primarily played by younger individuals, such as the Cadet Corps.
