Model Answer 1:

I played hide-and-seek lots of times when I was a kid. Normally we played this game with friends or classmates after class or during the weekends in a park or in a building with lots of rooms.

Firstly, we chose one of us to be the seeker to search around for the rest of us, the hiders.

The game started with the seeker covering his eyes and counting to 10 while everyone else ran off and found a place to hide. When the counting was finished, the seeker began a painstaking search for the hiding kids. And that was my favourite part of the game, because the suspense was just so intense. The hiders could really hold their breath, being afraid of getting caught. But then, there was always someone who got caught and this person would become the next seeker unfortunately.

Hide-and-seek was fun because it was simple. These days we play computer games to get fun, but sometimes I really missed those simple pleasures of old days.
