Hunt The Slipper

Source: Games For The Playground, Home, School And Gymnasium

_10 to 30 or more players._

_Parlor; seashore; gymnasium._

All of the players but one sit in a circle, with the feet drawn up and
knees raised so that a slipper may be passed from hand to hand of each
player under his knees. Where both boys and girls are playing, it is
desirable to have the girls alternate as much as possible with the
boys, as the slipper is more readily hidden under their skirts. The
players pass the slipper or bean bag around the circle under the
knees, the object being on their part to evade the vigilance of the
odd player, who runs around on the outside of the circle trying to
touch the person who holds the slipper. Many devices may be resorted
to for deceiving the hunter, such as appearing to pass the slipper
when it is not in one's hands, or holding it for quite a while as
though the hands are idle, although it is not considered good sport to
do this for very long or often. The players will use every means of
tantalizing the hunter; for instance, when he is at a safe distance,
they will hold the slipper up with a shout, or even throw it to some
other person in the circle, or tap the floor with it. When the hunter
succeeds in catching the player with the slipper, he changes places
with that player.

When the circle of players is very large, the odd player may take his
place in the center instead of outside the circle.
