It is an adult version of ‘Peek-a-boo’
The philosophy,what I think is,hiding is a kind of tension where the child is wondering whether he may be found at all and then once he is found by parents or friends…then it results in excitement and thus the combination of tension and excitement bring in thrill and feeling of achievement by both the players.
Wish I get back my childhood !!
