BLIND MAN'S BUFF.

Source: Games for Everybody






It is hardly necessary to describe this game as almost everybody knows
how to play it. There may be some who do not know, however, so it is
included here.

Clear the room as much as possible, pushing all the chairs, tables,
etc., against the walls. The child chosen as "Buff" is blindfolded,
and is asked the following question by the other children. "How many
horses has your father got?" He answers "Three." "What color are
they?" "Black, white, and gray," is answered. Everyone calls out "Turn
around three times and catch whom you may."

"Buff" turns around, and then tries to catch whoever he can. The
children try to escape him by dodging him until finally one is caught,
and before the handkerchief is raised, "Buff" must guess whom he has
caught. If he guesses correctly, the one caught becomes "Buff."





Next: CAT AND MOUSE.
