Does anybody remember a game called “Time”? Two girls go out of the room and choose a time from 1 to 12 and decide if it’s going to be thirty or o’clock. They then go back in and tell the others whether it thirty or o’clock. The others, in turn, start guessing the time. When someone guesses the correct time, the two who picked the time both have to yell “time”. The correct guesser then gets to pick a catagory like girls names or flowers and chooses 1 or 2. The original two girls go out again and each choose 1 or 2 (depending on what was picked by the correct guesser) names in that catagory. The idea is to pick what you think the correct guesser will choose. The person who called “time” first gets to choose names first and also gets to be the one to say these choices to the correct guesser. They then go back in and give the correct guesser the choices. If your choices are chosen, you get to go again with the new person and the old person sits down and everything starts all over again. Does this sound familiar to anyone (or does it even make sense?) I recently taught it to a group of children that I was working with and they played for hours.
