Game description

Even this game is funny; you are not allowed to laugh. That’s mean yet, that’s the rule. All children sit in a circle. Another kid sits right in the middle. The game begins with the child at the centre. He chooses another game and approaches this. He has to play a cat and meow. The other child has to say: “Poor black cat." The highlight of the game is, that while the child says, “Poor black cat,” he is not allowed to laugh. However, if he does, he becomes a Cheshire Cat himself and has to go to the middle of the circle. If nobody laughs a new kid can be selected after a little while. Because at some stage even the toughest cat is too tired to meow. If you think the cat is boring, you can decide on performing like a pig or crazy chicken. The funnier the impersonator, the funnier the entire game.
