This game is best played with very young children who are in kindergarten or primary school. First, all sit in a circle around the team leader. He determines one child who starts to count. After he said “one”, he determines the next kid. However, this is not to be one of the two kids sitting next to him. However, if he says the name of his neighbour accidentally and he does say the next number, the game is finished and starts all over again.
