RED-CAP AND BLACK-CAP GAME – Indoor Games for Kids

The players sit round in a circle, each taking a colour. Thus one is red-cap, another black-cap, and so on. One of them, who takes the place of master, and has no colour, taking up a cap says :

“Hullo, here’s a false stitch. Who made it, blue-cap?” Blue-cap then answers,
“Who, sir? I, sir?”
“Yes, you, sir!”
“Not I, sir.”
“Who then, sir?”
“Yellow-cap, sir.”
Yellow-cap then starts up and says,
“Who, sir? I, sir?”
and goes through the dialogues, giving another colour.
The player who neglects to start up when his colour is mentioned, or who does not repeat the question correctly, pays a forfeit.
