Scissors Crossed Or Uncrossed
A simple catch game is as follows. It is best if two of the group know how to play it. One of the two is the leader and the other helps her out. The leader hands a closed pair of scissors to her accomplice, who takes it and says: 'I received these scissors uncrossed and I give them crossed.' (Opening the scissors as she speaks.) She passes them to the player on her right who should say: 'I receive these scissors crossed and I give them crossed.' (If they are left open; if closed, they are uncrossed.) Those who do not know the game receive the scissors and pass them and say what they think they ought. It may be just what the player before said, but the condition of the scissors may not be the same, and, therefore, it is not right. Thus each one has a turn, and the game continues until some bright player notices that the scissors are called crossed when they are open and uncrossed when they are closed, and that the player who knows the game crossed her feet if the scissors were crossed, and if not, her feet were uncrossed, or resting on the floor as usual. Thus the object of the game is to change the words and the position of the feet in accordance with the position of the scissors.
