HOLD FAST, LET GO.

Source: Games for Everybody






A simple game for small children is the following. Each child takes
hold of a small sheet or tablecloth, the leader holding it with his
left hand, while he pretends to write with his right hand.

The leader says: "When I say 'Hold fast,' let go; and when I say 'let
go,' hold fast." He calls out the commands one at a time and the rest
do just the opposite of what he says. Whoever fails must pay a
forfeit.
