Grand Mufti

Children Playing Games

One of the company is chosen as Grand Mufti. The others then form a circle with the Grand Mufti in the centre, and every action which he performs, if preceded by the words, “Thus says the Grand Mufti,” must be imitated by every member of the circle.

The Grand Mufti, in order to lead one of the company astray, will sometimes omit to say the words: “Thus says the Grand Mufti;” in this case if any member of the company imitate his action, he is compelled to pay a forfeit.
