Lost Dog Game


Lost Dog Game

Players stand in a ring facing inwards. The leader stands in the centre. She addresses one of the players, saying, "I've lost my dog." The player asks, "What is it like?"

The leader describes any other person in the ring--trying a so to make the description fit a dog. When the questioner guesses the identity of the person described, the one described leaves her place and is followed round the circle by the questioner. Both race in the same direction, each returning to her place. The last to get back becomes the one to whom the leader will speak when the game begins again.
