One child is selected to be Simon. The rest of the children sit around

in a circle. Simon stands in the middle and gives all sorts of orders

for the children to follow. Every order which begins with "Simon says"

must be obeyed, whether Simon performs it or not, but if Simon should

give some order, such as "Thumbs down," whether he puts his thumbs

down or not, it must not be obeyed by the others because it was not

preceded by "Simon says."

All sorts of orders such as "Thumbs up," "Thumbs down," "Thumbs

wiggle-waggle," "Thumbs pull left ear," etc., are given. The faster

the orders are given, the more confusing it is. A forfeit must be paid

by those who fail to obey the orders.
