_5 to 30 or more players._
This is a game of leapfrog in which the leader (first over) sets feats
for the others to perform, as in Follow the Leader, any player who
fails taking the place of the back. The following feats are popular
The jumper leaps over, touching the back with one hand only and waving
his cap with the other.
The jumper leaps over without touching the back.
The jumper makes a quarter turn while going over.
HATS ON DECK
The leader, as he vaults, places his cap on the back,
and must clear without touching it. Each player, in turn, adds his hat
to the pile, the last player having to jump over all. If any one
knocks over the pile, he must become back, and the game begins over
again. If all jump successfully, the last one over then jumps again,
removing his hat as he goes over without disturbing the others, and so
on until all have been removed.
HATS FULL OF WATER
The jumper places his own hat on his head upside
down and balances it there while leaping over the back.
