BOOTS, WITHOUT SHOES.

All the players are sent out of the room. The leader remains inside
and calls one player in. They both sit down together and the leader
says: "Say just what I say. Say boots, without shoes." (With a short
pause after boots.) The victim may repeat the whole sentence and the
leader says, "No, I want you to say boots, without shoes," and thus it
may go on until the leader has given the simple statement in all sorts
of tones and expressions, and finally, the player realizes that when
told to say "Boots, without shoes," she must simply say "Boots."

Each player in turn is called in and put through the ordeal, affording
much amusement for those already in the room, until all have guessed
it and laughed over it.
