Arabic Hiding Game
Shaytana Gronue is a game played similar to hide and seek.
Somebody would be picked out of 10 people and that
person would be Shaytana Gronue. The chosen individual
must dress up in a costume representing the devil and
then hide anywhere. The game can be played inside or
outside. The object is for the remaining nine players
to go and seek out Shaytana Gronue. When spotted
"Shaytana Gronue" is yelled out and everybody runs to a
predetermined safety zone which Shaytana Gronue does not
know about. Players are eliminated by the poison touch
of Shaytana Gronue. The last player remaining then becomes
the new Shaytana Gronue.
When I was around 10 years old my father would play this
game with me and my brothers and sisters.
