What Shall We Do Now?               43
In this game the first player writes the name of an animal atthe top of the paper and folds it over. The next writes another,
and so on until you have four, or even five. You then unfold the papers and draw animals containing some feature of each of those named.
Drawn (/« a ga»!c) by Miss S. M. Clayton
A variation of this game is for the players to draw anddescribe a new creature. On one occasion when this game was
played every one went for names to the commoner advertisements. The best animal produced was the Hairy Coco, the description of which stated, among other things, that it was fourteen feet long and had fourteen long feet. On another occasion the Dilemma, a picture of which is given on this page, was the best creature.
