One team on one end and a base on the other end with a container (ice cream container) and on the team container but a container of blocks there so the team can grab blocks and try to dodge the other team who are the taggers. There is also a container at te side line so the tagging team can put the blocks in if they get any. 2. How the tagging team get  blocks

Here is the first verse and Chorus for hallelujah!!!!!!

I've heard there was a secret chord 
That David played, and it pleased the lord 
But you don't really care for music, do YA?
It goes like this the fourth the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing hallelujah 
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, halleluuuujah
