Game description

In this game, all the children have to sit in a circle of chairs. Then you add a spare chair to the circle. That child sitting next to this chair must say the following "I sit," the next child says "on the meadow", and the third child says "And secretly love …..." The fourth child is to select a child of his liking and call out his/her name. The moment the name is called out the said child has to jump up and run to the empty chair. However, the children sitting left and right are trying to prevent the child from sitting down. If the child cannot free itself, the game starts anew – this time beginning with the child who called out the last name. The game is a lot of fun and requires a lot of concentration at the beginning. If the players do not know each other well, it is a bit difficult to hold the called out child down. The reality might prove before the other kids even know who the called out child is, it is already sitting on the empty chair. However, after a few laps, the game should get easier.
