The company in this game must divide, one half taking seats on one side of the table, and the other half on the other side; the players on one side being called the guessers and the players on the other side being called the hiders. A button or any small object is produced, and the hiders have to pass it from hand to hand, under the table, so that those sitting opposite may not know who holds it. When it is hidden, one of the guessers cries out, Hands up! Immediately the hiders must place their closed hands on the table; the guessers have then to find out which hand holds the button. If successful, the hiders take their turn at guessing. The person in whose hand the button is found must pay a forfeit.

Cold, Warm, Hot
One child goes out of the room. A button or other small object is placed in plain sight by another child. The one who was sent out is then guided to the object by the clapping of the children, soft clapping for cold, and louder for warm.
