I see Red

One child, “the thinker” is given the privilege of thinking of some object in the room. He tells others the color of the object he’s thinking of. For example, if he sees a red apple he says, “I see red.” Thereupon the other children try to guess what red object in the room he is thinking of. The first child to guess correctly is the next “thinker”.

Rhymes

This game stimulates quick thinking. A child is selected by the parent to start the game, and there upon gives some word to which the first child in the aisle must give a rhyming word before the former can count ten. Failing to do this, the leader continues and gives a word to the second one inthe aisle. The rhyming words are to be given before the leader has completed his count of ten. Then the one succeeding in giving the word replaces the leader.

Twenty Questions

 

This is a quiet, entertaining and instructive game. One member of the family is given the privilege of thinking of some specific object anywhere in the universe. The others endeavor to guess what that object is and are only allowed to ask twenty questions in doing so. The one who thinks of the object to be guessed, only answers the questions asked by yes or no. It is exceptional when the object is not guessed, no matter how difficult it may be, before the twenty questions have been asked.

Example,—the King of Belgium is selected by the player. The first question asked by another player is, “Is it in the animal kingdom?” This question is answered by “Yes”.Second question: “Is it in a menagerie?”Answer: “No.”Third question: “Is it a man?”Answer: “Yes.”Fourth question: “Is it an historical character?”Answer: “Yes.”Fifth question: “Is he an American?”Answer: “No.”And so the questions and answers continue. Any one has the privilege of asking a question at anytime. The one who is thinking of the subject keeps a record of the number of questions asked. If anyone has guessed within twenty questions, he has the opportunity of thinking of the new object to be guessed.

One of the group is given the privilege of starting the game by assuming he is some well known character, and makes the statement, “I am the man who invented the lightning rod”. The others ofthe group endeavor to guess who he is. The one first guessing Benjamin Franklin is given theopportunity of continuing the game by assuming he is some other prominent character.
