Whether it was Horatio Nelson at the Trafalgar Square or that of Sherlock Holmes at 22B BakerStreet, we didn’t know. Although some claimed it was the Big Ben. Which begged the existential question of that decade: Are clock towers statues? But dubious nomenclature aside, London statue had the catcher at a very distinct advantage. He or she would have the power to control time by saying ‘statue’ and incapacitating the runners mid-sprint. The runners’ goal would be to breach the catcher’s territory as the catcher (quite villainously so) tries to make the ‘statues’ move through \verbal cues so as to get them out of the game. Hollywood has nothing on the psychological thrillers we made up as kids.
