- Have all the kids line up, shoulder to shoulder, at one end of the playing area.
- Put 1-3 kids in the middle of the playing area (these are the British Bulldogs).
- When the kids in the middle yell “British Bulldog,” all of the other kids must run (staying within the playing area), to the other side.
- Any kid who is tagged becomes a British Bulldog for the next round.
- Play until there are only a couple of runners left, and allow them to be the starting British Bulldogs for the next round.
