Items Needed:

  • Stick
  • People

How To Play:

Players sit or stand in a small circle, and a player tosses the branch into the center. As soon as it hits the ground all the players, except the one at which the branch is pointing, laugh histerically. The player at which the branch points must pick it up and return to his position without smiling or laughing. If he does so, he tosses the branch into the ring and the play continues. However, if he smiles or laughs, he is eliminated from the play. The game then continues with any player tossing the branch. As the players grow fewer in number the branch may not point directly at anyone; in this case the player closest to its point is the one who picks it up.
