King Frog

This parlor game is lots of fun for younger kids. Each player chooses an animal to imitate. They must come up with a symbol to represent this animal. Each player must remember each symbol. One player is the King Frog. His symbol is to clap your hands together, then move the top one away as if jumping.

The game begins with everyone seated in a circle. The King Frog makes his sign. He immediately makes another sign following his. The player whose sign was made must immediately make his/her sign followed immediately by another player's sign. Play continues in this fashion.

If any player hesitates and/or misses his cue, the players proceeds to the end of the circle, and all other players move up one seat. The goal is to become the King Frog.

Now tell me the truth, how often have you been the King Frog?

I reckon this game may take a little while getting used to.
