_5 to 60 players._

_Indoors; out of doors; schoolroom._

This game is played very much like "Simon says." It is a quiet game
that may be played with all of the players seated, their forefingers
placed on their knees or on a table or desk in front of them. One who
is leader says

"All horns up!"

"Cat's horns up!" or

"Cow's horns up!"

whereupon he lifts his own forefingers, pointing upward. Should he
name an animal that has horns, all of the players lift their fingers
in similar manner, but should he name an animal such as a cat, that
has no horns, any player that lifts his fingers in imitation of the
leader is out of the game.
