A rolled-up newspaper is used as a slapping stick. Everyone sits in a circle, except one player who sits in the middle and has the newspaper. The leader calls out the name of one of the people in the circle. The player in the middle must “tap” the person named with the newspaper before that person can call out another person’s name.
The group leader calls out the position of the player whose name should be called out. For example "who is the player 3 places to the right of Peter?" Peter must then name the person 3 places away on the right. The batter in the middle must tap Peter with the newspaper before he can call out the player's name. This option should be favoured when the group knows each other a little better or if players who are friends are seated together.
anyone who is too slow will have to stand in the middle more often.
