Now, to the classic kids game!

Hunt the Whistle

The chief participator in this game must be ignorant of the trick about to be played. He is told to kneel down whilst a lady knights him, naming him “Knight of the Whistle.” During the process someone fastens a small whistle to his coat tails by means of a piece of ribbon. He is then bidden to rise up and search for the whistle. The hunt begins; all the players combine to deceive the searcher; the must blow the whistle whenever they can do so without being detected. When the searcher discovers the trick the game is, of course, at an end.
