REUBEN AND RACHEL.

Source: Games for Everybody






Blindfold one of the players. All the rest form a ring and dance
around him until he points at some one. That one enters the ring and
the blindman calls out: "Rachel;" she answers: "Here, Reuben," and
moves about in the circle so as to escape being caught by "Reuben."

Every time the blindman calls out "Rachel," she must reply with
"Reuben" and thus it goes until finally "Rachel" is caught. "Reuben"
must guess who she is, and if he guesses correctly, "Rachel" is
blindfolded and the game goes on as before. If not, the same child is
"Reuben" again.
