a game for christmas ...
This is a memorising-out-loud game, based on the Victorian parlour game. It appeared in our local community newsletter, many of you love cats so I thought I would share it with you.
It is up to the organiser to keep the game moving at a steady pace, too many long pauses and the hesitant player is out.
The first player announces that the minister's cat is an awkward, or an awesome or an alpine cat, the next player repeats the 'a' adjective, and then adds one of his or her own, beginning with the letter 'b', and so it goes on, round the circle and through the alphabet.
Anyone who remembers that the minister's cat is an awesome, batty, cantankerous, dowdy, eclectic, fastidious, gregarious, horrendous, indigenous, jumpy, kinky, lazy, mischievious, notorious, opulent, pernicious, quiet, rowdy, sleepy, tortoiseshell, undisciplined, violent, wayward, xenophobic, yellow, zany cat - starts again (deserves a medal more like!). Anyone who does not, is out!
