You will need one index card for each guest. Write the letter D on one card, the letter F on one card and the letter X on all the remaining cards.
How to Play:
- This game works well with 6 or more players.
- Have all the children sit a circle, and pass out the index cards.
- Whoever gets the card with a D is the detective, and that child sits in the center of the circle.
- Whoever gets the card with an F is the frog.
- The rest of the children will have an X on their card, which means they are the flies.
- The frog sits in the circle with everyone else, and keeps his/her identity secret.
- When the game begins, the frog can 'eat" the flies by sticking out his/her tongue.
- The frog makes sure the detective isn't looking and then sticks his/her tongue out really fast.
- If any of the flies sees him/her they must fall on the floor and die.
- The detective tries to figure out who is the frog by watching carefully.
- The frog can stick his/her tongue out as long and as many times as he/she wants.
- If the frog can eat all the flies except for one, the frog wins.
- If the detective can identify the frog, then the detective wins.
- Collect the cards, pass them out again, and start the game over.
