SHIPS OF FATE.

Source: Games for Everybody
Category: GAMES FOR SPECIAL DAYS.





Prepare as many half shells of walnuts as there are guests. In each
fasten a small candle with a drop of the wax.

Fill a tub with water, and before sailing the boats, the water should
be agitated so as to have it wavy. Two at a time may sail their boats,
lighting the candles as they are launched. The life of the owner is
prophesied by the seaworthy qualities of his ship.

If the storm overcomes the ship, the one whose it is, will be wrecked
by adversity. The ship sailing across the tub signifies a long sea
voyage, while those remaining by the side show that the person loves
home better.

If the two ships stay together throughout the trip, the couple owning
them will have a happy marriage. If they bump together, that signifies
a quarrel, and if they sail in opposite directions, each person will
lead a single life.




Next: CAKE WITH CANDLES.
