Short description

Game where somebody in the center of a circle tries to find out which person has the rose.


You take an object, the "rose". Pick a person and put her or him in the center of the circle. She or he must close her or his eyes while the "rose" is passed from person to person behind their backs. When the center person opens her or his eyes, the passing immediately stops and she or he must make a guess as to who holds the "rose". If she or he is correct, they trade places. If wrong, the eyes are closed and the passing begins again.
