The Blind Postman

Source: Games For All Occasions
Category: GAMES FOR CHILDREN





First a postmaster-general must be appointed, whose duty is to write
down the names of the players, and the names of the cities they have
chosen to represent. The postman is blindfolded and led to the middle
of the room, whilst the other players are seated round it. The
postmaster-general then begins to announce that a letter has been sent
from one town to another, say from Denver to Chicago. The two players
who have taken those names must rise up silently and change seats.

The postman's duty is to try and seat himself in one of the vacant
chairs; the player who loses his chair must become the blind postman.
