All but one of the players, form a ring standing about two feet apart.
Then by some "counting out" rhyme some one is made "it." He then
takes his place in the centre of the circle, holding a piece of stout
string on the end of which is tied a small weight or a book. He whirls
the string about and tries to strike the feet or ankles of some one in
the circle, who must hop quickly as the string comes near him. If he
fails to "hop over" he becomes "it."
