THE GENTEEL LADY.

Source: Games for Everybody
Category: GAMES FOR ADULTS





The players sit in a circle. The leader begins by saying, "I, a
genteel lady (or gentleman, as the case may be) always genteel, come
to you, a genteel lady (or gentleman) always genteel (bows to the
player on the right), from yonder genteel lady (or gentleman) always
genteel (bows to player on left), to tell you that she has an eagle."

The next player repeats that word for word and adds something about
the eagle, for instance, the last part may be, "to tell you that she
has an eagle with silver beak." The next player may add, "golden
claws," the next "emerald eyes," the next "purple feathers," and so
on.

The players who repeat every word correctly, adding their description
of the eagle, remain "genteel," but those who make a mistake become
"horned" instead of "genteel."

The leader has charge of the "horns" which may be toothpicks or pieces
of paper twisted up tight. For every mistake a "horn" is tucked in the
player's hair. Each player repeats what the leader has said, but if
the player next to him is "horned," he must substitute "horned" for
"genteel" when referring to him.

When each one has repeated this tale, the players who have "horns,"
and there will be many, must pay a forefeit for every "horn" they
have.
