  1. Dickedy, Dickedy Dock!
    The mouse ran up the clock
    The clock struck one
    The mouse is gone
    Dickedy, Dickedy Dock!
    This game can be played by two or more girls. The first player shuts her eyes and with a pencil she goes around the circle from one number to another at the same time saying the above rhyme. When she comes to the end of the rhyme she opens her eyes looks at the number under the pencil. This number is placed in colum at the side of the circle. The next player does the same and so on for a number of rounds. The player who scores the highest total is the winner.
