MY FATHER HAD A ROOSTER!

Source: Games for Everybody
Category: GAMES FOR ADULTS





All the players sit in a circle, the leader begins by saying, "My
father had a rooster!" The player to his left says: "A what?" The
leader answers: "A rooster!" Each player repeats this in turn to his
left-hand neighbor who asks the question, until it is the leader's
turn again.

He then repeats the first part and asks the player next to him, "Could
he crow?" The player answers, "Crow he could." This is repeated by
each player with the previous questions. The next time the leader
says "How could he crow?" The player on the left answers
"Cock-a-doodle-doo!" This goes around the circle again and when the
last one has taken part, all together say "Cock-a-doodle-doo," as a
finish.

No one is supposed to laugh during the whole game, whoever does, may
either pay a forfeit or is out of the game. It is best to have a
person who knows the game sit next to the leader, so they can start
the game correctly. The complete statements are these,

"My father had a rooster!"
"A what?"
"A rooster!"
"Could he crow?"
"Crow he could!"
"How could he crow?"
"Cock-a-doodle-doo!"
