Aunt Miriah Died

In this game, participants sit next to each other.

The first person says, "Did you know Aunt Miriah died?"
The next persons answers, "No, How'd she die?"
The first person says something like "She died with one eye closed" and closes one eye.
The first person has to keep one eye closed for the remainder of the game.

The second person asks the third the same question and keeps her one eye closed, then the third, the fourth, each holding that one eye closed until they get back to the first one.

When the game gets back to the first one, she adds on another trait.

For instance,

"Did you know Aunt Miriah died?"
"No, how'd she die?"
"She died with one eye closed and her mouth twisted."

(or one finger sticking up, or one leg crossed, etc.)

The object of the game is to add another trait each time while continuing to hold the others. Anyone who breaks the chain is out. The last one to hold out wins.

We play this as: My poor dogs dead?
How did he die?
Blind in one eye....
One paw high
Mouth all awry
And his tail wagging..
So everyone has one eye shut, one arm in the air, mouth off to the side, and shakng their bum.
Nearly got thrown out of a pub playing it, we were so loud..

I think it sounds good, but with larger parties you could add on traits at every person instead so it would go a lot quicker?

Refutation by Counter Example

If, hypothetically, Aunt Miriah died with both eyes closed in the first round then how would anybody know if the rest of the players were out in future rounds because they couldn't see each other so they wouldn't know whether or not any of the other participants were holding all subsequent traits... :/ Oh dear Edith, it looks like your premise is inherently flawed; try Teddy Bear, Mad Ball or Water Burst instead, they're awesome!! :D
