Animal Blind Man's Buff

Source: Games For The Playground, Home, School And Gymnasium
Category: MISCELLANEOUS ACTIVE GAMES





_10 to 30 or more players._

_Parlor; gymnasium; playground._

One player is blindfolded and stands in the center of a circle with a
wand, stick, or cane in his hand. The other players dance around him
in circle until he taps three times on the floor with his cane, when
they must stand still. The blind man thereupon points his cane at some
player, who must take the opposite end of the cane in his hand. The
blind man then commands him to make a noise like some animal, such as
a cat, dog, cow, sheep, lion, donkey, duck, parrot. From this the
blind man tries to guess the name of the player. If the guess be
correct, they change places. If wrong, the game is repeated with the
same blind man.

The players should try to disguise their natural tones as much as
possible when imitating the animals, and much sport may be had through
the imitation. Players may also disguise their height, to deceive the
blind man, by bending their knees to seem shorter or rising on toes to
seem taller.

Where there are thirty or more players, two blind men should be placed
in the center.

There is much sport in this game for either children or adults
or both together. The author has known it to be the occasion
for great merriment under all three circumstances.
