SHOUTING PROVERBS.

Source: Games for Everybody
Category: GAMES FOR ADULTS





The more playing this game, the merrier it will be. Send one of the
players from the room. The others decide upon a familiar proverb which
he is to guess when he returns. Suppose the one chosen is "A rolling
stone gathers no moss." Beginning with the leader and going to the
left each player in turn takes one word, thus the leader has "a," the
next "rolling," the next "stone" and so on, repeating it until every
player has a word. If the company is large two or three might have the
same word.

When the one who was out is summoned in, he counts 1,2,3; when he says
3, all the players shout their word. It will be very confusing and
hard to hear any one word, but after the second or third trial, one
word which was heard above the rest might suggest the whole proverb.

The player who is out is given five trials in which to guess; if he
does not succeed, he must go out again, but if he has listened
attentively to one or two, and has guessed correctly, the player whose
shouting gave away the proverb is then sent out and the game continues
as before.
