All the players sit in a circle and one who knows the trick takes a

small cane in his right hand; then, taking it in his left hand, he

passes it to his neighbor, saying: "Malaga grapes are very good

grapes; the best to be had in the market." He tells his neighbor to do

the same.

Thus the cane passes from one to the other, each one telling about the

grapes; but if any should pass the stick with the right hand, a

forfeit must be paid. The trick must not be told until it has gone

around the circle once or twice.
