OLD SOLDIER.

Source: Games for Everybody






One child, who represents the old soldier, goes around to each child
in turn and begs for something, saying that he is poor, hungry, blind,
etc., and asks what they will do for him.

In answering the old soldier no one must use the words, "Yes," "No,"
"Black," or "White." As soon as a child is asked, he must answer
immediately. If he does not, or says any of the forbidden words, he
must pay a forfeit.





Next: HIDE AND SEEK.
