Bluffing Games Sardines

( Bluffing, Guessing, Hide and Seek, Strategy )

This is a game of hide and seek that reverses some of the usual methods of playing the game. The player chosen to be It instead of blinding goes out himself to hide while all of the other players stay at the goal. While one of their number counts one hundred they must all either blind their eyes or be shut in one room to give the hider a fair chance. After counting they shout “One hundred ” and all start out to hunt for the hider. Any player discovering him must after making sure that none of the others observe him hide in the same place with the hider. If necessary he must linger near until there is opportunity to do this without being discovered. If there should not be room to hide in the same place the finder must take a seat in plain sight near the hiding place. Sometimes a large number of players will be seated in a room or in a group out of doors while the last unfortunate hunters try to locate some clever hiding place which is obviously near but hard to detect. Of course it is better for the players to actually hide with the first hider if practicable which probably suggested on occasion being “packed in like sardines.”

This is one of the most interesting house party games for young people for either out of doors or within.
