Rooster





Ten or twenty are as many as can well play this game. The group is

arranged in seats around the room. The leader starts the game by

saying, "My father had a rooster". His left hand neighbor says, "A

what?" The leader answers, "A rooster". The left hand neighbor then

turns to his left hand neighbor and says, "My father had a rooster",

and that neighbor says, "A what?", and his answer is "A rooster". This

question is asked of each left hand neighbor until it has travelled

around the room. When it becomes the leader's turn, he again says, "My

father had a rooster", and his left hand neighbor says, "A what?". He

answers, "A rooster". The left hand neighbor says, "Could he crow?" And

the leader answers, "Crow he could". This dialogue is passed on around

the room, each repeating the exact words of the leader to his left hand

neighbor.



When it again becomes the leader's turn, he repeats the dialogue

previously used and his left hand neighbor inquires, "How could he

crow?" And the leader replies, "Cock-a-doodle-do", imitating a rooster.

This is passed around the room. No one is supposed to laugh during the

whole game. Whoever does may either pay a forfeit or is out of the

game. It is well to have a player who knows the game sit next to the

leader, so that it may start correctly.
