BELT GAME

ONE PERSON IS GIVEN A LEATHER BELT. THE REST OF THE
PLAYERS, WHO ARE IN SHORTS, FORM A CIRCLE. THE PLAYER
WHO HAS THE BELT GOES AROUND THE CIRCLE UNTIL HE COMES
TO A PLAYER HE DISLIKES. HE TAPS THIS PERSON ON THE
SHOULDER. THIS IS THE SIGNAL FOR THE PERSON IN THE
CIRCLE TO RUN. THE PLAYER WITH THE BELT CHASES THE
PLAYER HE DISLIKES AROUND THE CIRCLE ONCE, HITTING
HIM WITH THE BELT AS MUCH AS HE CAN. AFTER GOING
AROUND ONCE THE PLAYER BEING BEATEN IS SAFE. THE
PLAYER HAVING THE BELT HAS TO PASS IT SOMEONE ELSE.
THE GAME CONTINUES.
