NEW BLIND MAN'S BUFF.

Source: Games for Everybody






The one who is chosen for the "blind man" does not have his eyes
bandaged as in the old game.

Stretch a sheet between two doors and place a light, candle or lamp,
on a table some distance from the sheet. The "blind man" sits on the
floor or low chair in front of the light facing the sheet, but he must
be so low down that his shadow will not appear on the sheet.

The children form a line and march single file between the light and
the "blind man," who is not allowed to turn around. Thus their shadows
are thrown on the sheet and as they pass, the "blind man" must guess
who they are. The children may disguise their walk and height, so as
to puzzle him.

As soon as the "blind man" guesses one correctly, that one takes his
place and becomes "blind man," while the former takes his place in the
procession, and the game proceeds as before, but the children had
better change places, so the new "blind man" won't know their
positions.
