The players are divided into two groups--A and B. One group (A)
performs some action representing an occupation, as sewing, picking
flowers, driving nails, etc. The other side (B) must guess in a limited
number of guesses what the motions represent. If it fails, one player
from this group must go over to the other group. Then the A's have
another chance. If the B's guess correctly they may select one from the
"A" side and also have another chance to represent an occupation. The
side having the most players at the end of the game wins.

After the A's have decided what they are to do they approach the B's
and the following dialogue takes place:

A's. Here we come.
B's. Where from?
A's. New Orleans.
B's. What's your trade?
A's. Lemonade.
B's. How's it made?

At the last question, the A's begin the motions previously agreed upon.

Intelligence test.
