Tricky Bear

Get everyone sitting in a circle with a cup or glass in front of them.

The game starts, with everyone singing the rhyme:

"On a Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday,
Oh beware, of the snare, of the Tricky Tricky Bear".

As you sing you must pass you cup on to the next person (to the left) in time with the rhyme. You pass for every day etc.

As you sing, the speed of the rhyme gets faster and faster. When you get to the line "Tricky Tricky Bear" you place the cup to the next person but don't let it go, then take it back.

So it goes:

"TRICKY" - give it to the person
"TRICKY BEAR" - take it back

If you drop a cup, you go out.

When it gets down to 2 people, just pass the cups in front, until someone messes up.

Winner is the last man in.

When we played it, we said rikki tikki bear. On rikki you put the cup in front of the next person, on tikki you pulled it back in front of yourself, and on bear you shifted direction to hand it to the person behind you. The song immediately started over with On a Sunday... If the group playing got to be good at it, we would start flipping the cup with each pass or each person had two cups and the first pass was to your second hand.

Can't post the link, but if you look on Youtube under Riki Tiki Bear at 2012 PA East HOBY you'll find a video.

we played this game in choir on friday except our's was a little different. in our game everyone has 2 cups and you pass them to the right and the rhyme is "on a sunday, monday, tuesday wednesday thursday, friday, saturday night, oh beware of the stare of the rikki tikki bear on a sunday, monday night."
it's a little tricky at first but once you get it it's pretty fun and it teaches rythm

I'd like more details....the tune of the rhythm and when to start the last part of it. For some of us that have never played it....it would be nice to kind of show it on U-tube or something...

It doesn't sound too fun. I think it's because I'm not too sure on the rhythm we're meant to be singing at.
