A painting of three children playing hide and seek. Played in Europe since the late 1700s, the game is responsible for bringing the phrase "Ollie Ollie oxen free" into American culture. Most historians believe this phrase derives from the German "Alles, Alles auch so ein frei" meaning "Everyone, everyone else is also free."
