Change Seats: The King's Come

Source: Games For All Occasions
Category: GAMES FOR CHILDREN





In this game as many seats are placed round the room as will seat all
the players but one. This one stands in the middle of the room,
repeating the words: "Change seats, change seats;" but no one moves
unless he says: "Change seats: the king's come."

Then all must change seats. In the bustle the one standing can generally
manage to secure a seat, when the person left out must take his place.

The person in the centre may tell a story if he chooses, bringing in the
words; "Change seats," occasionally, and sometimes he may say slyly:
"The king's not come," when everyone should, of course, remain seated;
but some are sure to mistake the words for "The king's come," and jump
up, when the centre player can slip into a seat.
