_10 to 30 or more players._

_Schoolroom; parlor; playground; gymnasium._

This is a quiet game designed to test the memory, and makes an
interesting variation when players are tired of active games. The
players are all seated, with the exception of one, who is sent from
the room. Or if the game be played in an open playground, this one
player may blind his eyes in a corner of a wall or fence or behind a
bush. When this player is well out of sight and hearing, the leader or
teacher beckons one of the players, who leaves the group and hides. If
in the schoolroom, this may be done under the teacher's desk or in a
wardrobe. The rest of the players then change their seats, and the one
who is blinding is called back and tries to tell which player is
hidden. When successful, this first guesser may be seated and another
chosen to blind. Otherwise the first guesser blinds again.
