MY HOUSE, YOUR HOUSE.

Source: Games for Everybody






Attach a string to the end of a small stick. At the end of the string
make a loop that will slip very easily. On a table make a circle with
chalk.

The leader, or fisherman, arranges the loop around the circle and
holds the stick in his hand. Whenever he says: "My house," each player
must put his first finger inside the circle, and leave it there. When
"Your house" is said, the fingers must be withdrawn.

The commands must be given very quickly, and the fisherman must be
quick to jerk his rod, thus catching several fingers.

A forfeit should be paid by everyone who is caught, and the fisherman
can exchange places if he wishes.
