PASSING CLOTHESPINS.

Source: Games for Everybody
Category: GAMES FOR ADULTS





Sides are chosen among the players. Each side then takes its position,
forming a row on the floor, the leader at the end. The sides face each
other, but quite a space is left between them.

At the head of each line is placed a basket containing twelve
clothespins. Each player is instructed to hold his neighbor's right
wrist with his left hand, thus leaving one hand (the right one), free.

The leaders begin by passing the clothespins, one at a time, down the
line, each player being careful not to drop one. When one reaches the
end of the line, the last player places it on the floor beside him
until all twelve have been passed, then he passes them, the same as
before, up the line to the leader.

The side which succeeds in passing all its clothespin back to its
leader first is the victorious side. It is best to have a trial game
first, so that the players may become used to passing with one hand,
thus being able to do it rapidly for the regular game.


If a clothespin is dropped, the player who dropped it must pick it up
and pass it on. The rest must wait until it is passed before passing
any of the others.
