Jenkins Up

Divide the company into two sides. One division sits around the table

on one side, the other on the opposite side. The members of the

division "A" put their hands under the table and a small coin, dime or

quarter, is passed from one to the other. When division "B" thinks they

have had enough time, the captain calls out, "Jenkins up!" and the

players of "A" hold up their closed hands; and when "Jenkins down!" is

called, they must place their open hands, palm down, on the table. The

players of "B" must guess under which palm the coin is. Every player

may guess, but only the captain is to be obeyed when he orders an

opponent to lift a hand. If a player can succeed in finding the

whereabouts of the coin by causing an opponent to raise his hand, it is

legitimate. The object is to have the hand containing the coin remain

on the table last. Every hand left with the palm on the table when the

hand hiding the coin is lifted, counts a point for the team holding the

coin. The teams alternate the guessing.
