Neek-in-the-middle was a game played by children in which an object, usually a ball, would be passed between two players in such a way as to prevent a third player, who stood in the middle, from obtaining it.

Behind the scenesEdit

A game called neek-in-the-middle was given its own entry in The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia, released in 2008. In real life, there is a game, Keep Away, that is often called "monkey-in-the-middle" and features an identical premise.
