An assistant is necessary for this game. One gives a little talk about
sign-language and says that he can read any sign made with a stick on
the floor, and will leave the room while the others decide upon some
word for him to guess.

Beforehand, it has been agreed upon between the leader and his
assistant that one tap of the stick on the floor will represent "a";
two taps, "e"; three taps, "i"; four taps, "o"; five taps, "u." Thus
all the vowels are indicated by taps, and the consonants, by having
the first word of the sentence which the leader gives begin with the
chosen letter. The letters of the chosen word must be given in order.

The leader, who remains inside, knows the chosen word, and when the
assistant is called in, he makes many signs with the stick, tapping in
the proper places.

Suppose the word chosen is "Games." When the assistant is called in,
the leader begins by making many scrolls, etc., on the floor, then
says: "Great fun, isn't it?" (initial letter "g"), then one tap, "a";
"Many don't know what I'm writing." (initial letter "m"); 2 taps, "e";
"Sometimes it is hard to read." (initial letter "s"). Then a few more
marks, so as not to end too abruptly, and the assistant says "Games,"
to the astonishment of the company.

This is continued until some have guessed, or until the trick has been
explained.
