Game description

All players sit on chairs in a circle. The players must remember which chair they are sitting on and is given a card which the player takes note of the colour and suit of the card (Diamonds, Hearts, Spades or Clubs). The leader mixes the leftover cards and says a colour or suit. Those players with this colour “slide” over one chair to the right. If someone is already sitting there, he sits on his lap. If there are numerous players sitting on someone’s lap, only the player “on top” is allowed to slide over to the next chair. After everyone slides over, the leader calls out another colour to start the next round. The player who slides around the circle to the chair he began with, is the winner.


The winner is the first person to reach their stool again.
