Hunt the Slipper
This, perhaps, is the oldest game on record; yet it is always popular. The players sit on the floor in a circle, with their toes touching. Then a person outside the circle brings a slipper to be mended (a small one) and leaves it. Returning in a few moments, she asks for the slipper, but it is not finished. She thereupon goes away and returns later, and again asks for the slipper, it is not finished yet, but she demands it, as she cannot wait any longer. The slipper cannot be found! Then commences the hunt. It is passed from one to the other, until the owner secures it.
