Avoid The Hassock Dance
Here is a game that will afford endless amusement to players and spectators alike. Place a hassock on end in the middle of the room and form a circle about it. Begin by dancing around. Then one player must try to draw the other on to the hassock, so as to knock it over. Should anyone touch it and cause it to fall over, he must retire, and the others continue until two only are left in, in which case the conqueror wins. The fun is great, an often when you have one of the circle right against the hassock, he will jump over and back again in his endeavour to avoid knocking it over.
