Definition

Vish means poison. Amrit means nectar. Vish Amrit is thus a game of poison and nectar, of good and bad, and is best played on a constricted playground such as a chath. One denner runs around catching people. Upon touching someone, the denner must yell "VISH!" which instantly freezes the hapless person, who has to stand still and hold the pose. His or her teammates must liberate them by touching them and yelling "AMRIT!" Of course, they must do this before the denner touches them and freezes them. The denner thus doles out poison, attempting to freeze the entire gaggle of screaming prey. Heroes exist who must resist capture, doling out nectar. The game ends when the denner freezes the lot.

Usage

Arun chettan, want to play Vish Amrit?
Sure!
OK, but let Sandhya free some people, ok? Otherwise it's not fun.

saani, it seems to be an "All India" sort of game. I'm pleased to say I was the deadliest denner in South Delhi.
