Scissors

This is a brainteaser.

To play have to have a pair of scissors and you have to pass it around in a circle, any number of people can play. When passing to the person next to you, you must either be passing the scissors CROSSED OR UNCROSSED.

For example, I pass these scissors to you crossed and you receive them from me either crossed or uncrossed. The trick of the game is it has nothing to do with the scissors it is the person legs that become crossed or uncrossed that has to be observed. Once people observe what it is they must keep it to themselves and continue the game until all the other frustrating players get it.

You must be discreet with the legs as you will give it away. The game leader will be telling the players weather they have it right or not and tell them what it actually is until they get it right.

Can be very frustrating, when people start getting it one by one, they must not tell each other once they work it out.

I found this game incredibly frustrating when i first played it, it can be a mistake to play if you don't have a nice group...

Starting off you're the only person who knows, so do you tell the guest to jsut pass the scissors? But then how do ppl catch on, if your the only one?

Sit in a circle and one person knows how to play the game. You cross your legs or open them and pass the scissors. The person you pass it to has to copy your leg position to be able to pass it on
