Set Up



Stand/sit around a table or sit in a circle on the floor. Ask participants to put right hand on the table and left hand on the table crossing the person to the left. The object is to pass a rhythm sequentially around the circle (hand to hand, not person to person) by slapping the table or floor. At any point a participant can slap twice, reversing the direction. If a participant slaps out of order or pauses, he or she removes that hand from the circle. When both hands are removed, a participant is “out” and can help judge from outside the circle. Additional rules can include fist to signify skip one hand and double fist to signify skip reverse. Other rules can be added for increased complexity.
