Chocolate Game

This is a popular children's game at parties that originally came from Germany.

Everyone sits in a circle. In the center is a chocolate bar wrapped several times in wrapping paper (don't use anything too expensive - it's only going to get torn off as quickly as possible!), a scarf, a hat, a pair of gloves, and a knife and fork. If you're feeling particularly mean, you can also tie some string around the chocolate like a parcel. Before the game starts, each player takes it in turns to roll a dice. The player rolling the highest number begins the game.

To play the game, each player rolls the dice in turn. If a player rolls a six, she goes to the center of the circle, puts on the hat, scarf and gloves, and begins to unwrap the chocolate bar using the knife and fork. (If a six isn't rolled, the player passes the dice onto the next player in the circle). Meanwhile, the dice is passed onto the next girl. The next girl who rolls a six replaces the girl in the center. She must put on the hat scarf and gloves before continuing to unwrap the chocolate bar. Once the chocolate is unwrapped, girls may start cutting up the chocolate and eating it - until of course someone else throws a six! The game finishes when all the chocolate has been eaten.

One of the fun parts of this game is that there is no winner!
