Hen Roost

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





_5 to 30 or more players._

_Parlor; schoolroom._

Each of the players except one chooses a word, which should be the
name of some object, and in answering any questions put to him in the
game he must introduce this word which he has chosen into each answer.
The odd player takes the place of questioner. He may ask one or more
questions of each player, as he sees fit, the dialogue taking any turn
he chooses, the following being suggestive of the general tone of
it


The questioner says: "I heard that you got into the hen roost
yesterday. How did you get in?"

Answer: "With the dictionary."

To the next player: "What did you find there?"

Answer: "A horse."

To the next player: "What did you give him to eat?"

Answer: "A sofa pillow," etc.

Any player who laughs, or who fails to answer promptly or correctly to
the question, must change places with the questioner. Forfeits may
also be required if desired.
