Before you start the game leader reveals background and history to one participant. The other partakers should not hear this because otherwise the final punch is lost. Now, this particular player puts on a turban and sits down on a carpet. The game leader puts a closed basket or any other container in front of the child. The player starts to pray: “Allah, give me a white snake!” Then he looks into the container, in a way, that no other child can see the content. Then he says: “Allah, please give me a white snake. I think I need some help.” The child now chooses another child, and now they pray together: “Allah, please give me a white snake!” As soon as all children sit on the carpet, the child looks into the container one more time. Then he says: “Allah did not give me a white snake, but he gave me x-amount dumb camels – referring to the number of children sitting on the carpet; as many times as the child asked for help.
