Blind Mans Buff
In the olden times this game was known by the name of Hoodman Blind, as in those days the child that was chosen to be blind man had a hood placed over his head, which was fastened at the back of the neck.
In the present day the game is called Blind Man's Buff, and very popular it is among young folk.
Before beginning to play, the middle of the room should be cleared, the chairs placed against the wall, and all toys and footstools put out of the way. The child having been selected who is to be Blind Man or Buff, is blindfolded. He is then asked the question, How many horses has your father got? The answer is Three, and to the question: What color are they? he replies: Black, white, and gray. All the players then cry: Turn round three times and catch whom you may. Buff accordingly spins round and then the fun commences. He tries to catch the players, while they in their turn do their utmost to escape Buff, all the time making little sounds to attract him. This goes on until one of the players is caught, when Buff, without having the bandage removed from his eyes, has to guess the name of the person he has secured. If the guess is a correct one, the player who has been caught takes the part of Buff, and the former Buff joins the ranks of the players.
