PROVERBS.

Source: Games for Everybody
Category: GAMES FOR ADULTS





Any number of persons may play this game. One is sent out of the room
while the rest choose some proverb. Then he is called in and asks each
player in turn a question. In the answer, no matter what the question
is, one word of the proverb must be given.

Suppose the proverb "Make hay while the sun shines" is taken, then
player No. 1 would have "Make"; No. 2, "hay"; No. 3, "while"; No. 4,
"the"; No. 5, "sun"; No. 6, "shines"; No. 7, "make"; etc., giving each
player a word, often repeating the proverb several times.

The answers to the questions must be given quickly, and no special
word emphasized. Often the one guessing will have to go around
several times before he can discover any word which will reveal the
proverb. The one whose answer gave the clue must leave the room next,
and it becomes his turn to guess.





Next: ANIMAL, VEGETABLE, OR MINERAL.

Previous: BOOTS, WITHOUT SHOES.
