REDHOT POTATO.

Source: Games for Everybody






The "potato" in this game is a knotted handkerchief. One player is
chosen for the center, and the others sit around in a circle. The one
in the center throws the "potato" to anyone in the circle. This one
must throw it to another player and so on, tossing it, from one to
another, and never allowing it to rest.

The player in the center tries to catch it. If he succeeds, the one
who last tossed it exchanges places with him, and the game goes on as
before.
