WINK.





All the girls sit in a circle, and the boys stand outside, one boy

behind each girl's chair. One chair is left vacant, but a boy stands

behind it, and by winking at the girls one at a time, tries to get one

for his empty chair.



As soon as a girl is winked at, she tries to leave her seat, and take

the vacant one, but if the boy behind her touches her before she

leaves the seat, she cannot go. Each boy has to keep his eye on the

one who is winking and on the girl in his chair, for if he is not

watching, she may escape before he has time to touch her, and then it

is his turn to do the winking and get a girl for his chair.



If the winking is done quickly it adds to the interest of the game. No

boy can keep hold of a girl all the time; he must only touch her when

she starts to leave her place, and then if she is beyond arm's length,

he cannot call her back.
