Game Of Shadows

For this game you require a white sheet to be hung up at the end of the room. Then the shadow makers take up their places on low stools behind the sheet. There must be only one lamp in the room, which should be placed about six or seven feet behind the shadow makers. Then the shadow makers drape themselves with shawls, or anything handy, and take their places so that their shadows are thrown upon the sheet. They must, of course, try to disguise themselves, so that the shadow seekers may not be able to guess their identity. By loosening the hair and letting it fall over the face, a girl may appear like a man with a beard; bending the finger over the nose gives one a very queer looking hooked nose in the shadow, and entirely alters the appearance of the face. Covering one's self up in a sheet and then extending the arms gives one the appearance of a large bat. As soon as a shadow maker's identity has been guessed he must take his place as a shadow seeker, and the one who guessed him becomes a shadow maker. The penalty of a glance behind the sheet on the part of the shadow seeker is to pay a forfeit.
