Game description

At the beginning of the game the game, leader selects one child who has to come to the middle of the circle. Now there is one empty space. The kid left of him now moves to the empty chair saying, “I am riding on a train,” then the next kid moves to the empty space, saying, “I ride without paying.” The third child now has to call the name of one of the kids in the circle. This child jumps up and runs to the empty space. This, of course, causes another gap in the circle, which the kids try to fill as shown above. The child in the middle, however, needs to try to grab one of the empty chairs. If he succeeds, the child, which now has no seat remains in the middle.


Usually, there is no winner.
