College men running around campus with giant fruit is a reality at Taylor . This is Melon and Gourd-a week-long game of tag that is an annual tradition of Third West Wengatz (3WW). All week, the men of 3WW are on edge as they try their best to remain untagged. It is not a game to be taken lightly. It requires skill, athleticism, alertness, strategy and creativity.
Here are the basics to the game: there is one melon and one gourd. Whoever has the melon or the gourd is tagged. If they are inside a building or touching a door handle that is attached to a building, they are safe. Car door handles don't count and they have to be holding the melon or the gourd in order to tag someone.
