_2 to 10 players._

_Gymnasium; playground; seashore._

A circle from twelve to twenty feet in diameter is drawn on the
ground. This is intersected with straight lines, like the spokes of a
wheel, which divide it into twelve sections, numbered consecutively
from one to twelve.

One player is blindfolded, placed in the center (on the hub of the
wheel), and turned around several times to confuse his sense of
direction. He then walks around inside the rim while counting twelve,
or repeating the verse

"Dickery, dickery, dock;
The mouse ran up the clock;
The clock struck ten
He ran down again,
Dickery, dickery, dock."

He stops on the last word, and the number of the space in which he
stands is scored to his credit; for instance, if he stops in section
eight, it scores eight points for him; if in section three, it scores
three points, etc. Should he stop with one foot on a line or outside
the circle, he scores nothing. The players take turns, each having but
one trial at a turn. The game is won by the player first scoring
twenty-five or fifty points, as may be decided.
