The Cup Game II
Sent in by: Ken of Rowley, MA

The Cup Game with a wordy twist!

This game is for 3 or more players. (The more, the better.)

This is a game of accuracy. If you make the wrong move, you're out. The last person playing is the winner.

First take your cup and turn it upside down.

Clap twice and tap the cup 3 times on the top.

Now clap again and pick up your cup and move it to the right.

You clap, pick up the cup upside down, so when you pick it up, it's upright.

Tap the top of it with your left hand, put it down.

Pick it up with your left hand, put your right hand down, and cross your left arm over your right to put the cup back on the table.

So the whole thing is:

Clap, clap, tap, tap, tap.

Clap, move, right.

Clap, turn, touch, touch, change, pat, over.

One more time just to see if you've got it:

Clap clap tap tap tap,

Clap... move... right.

Clap, turn, touch, touch, change, pat, over.

OK, now here's the game with some words that will help you learn it. It goes like this:

Clap clap bubble gum,

Clap up down,

Clap turn touch touch,

Change pat down.
