YOU CAN TELL FORTUNES BY USING A DECK OF CARDS,
AND TAKING OUT THE FOUR KINGS FOR GIRLS, THE FOUR
QUEENS FOR BOYS. YOU SET THE FOUR CARDS OUT AND CAN
PROCEED BYEITHER MAKING EACH CARD THE NAME OF A
PARTICULAR BOY OR BY MAKING ONE EACH A "YES"
"NO," "SOMETIMES," AND "MAYBE." ONE PERSON IS IN
CHARGE OF THE REMAINING CARDS, AND TELLS THE
FORTUNES BY MATCHING THE FIRST TWO CARDS THAT ARE
THE SAME (A CARD FROM THE DECK THAT MATCHES IN
SUITE WITH ONE OF THE FOUR CARDS WHICH IT IS LAID
ON). THAT KING OR QUEEN WHICH FINALLY GETS A
MATCHING SUITE CARD LAID ON IT IS THE ANSWER TO THE
QUESTION PREVIOUSLY ASKED.
