Tom Tiddler's Ground (Book): Dickens, Charles: Tom Tidler's Ground, also known as Tom Tiddler's Ground or Tommy Tiddler's Ground, is an ancient children's game in which one player, Tom Tidler, stands on a heap of stones, gravel, etc.; other players rush onto the heap, crying Here I am on Tom Tidler's ground, while Tom tries to capture the invaders or keep them off.

Tom Tiddler's Ground was a children's game, whereby Tom Tiddler had to protect an area from intruders.
