Second Entry for Forgotten Indian Games - Nivedita's Event


This is my another entry for "Forgotten Indian Games" event. I'm happy that I could post this atleast at the last minute. Today, I'm going to share about the two games we played in our school days. One is "Action, Freeze and Ease" and another game is "Passing the Secret". But I don't have any pictures to share. Just giving the procedure alone.

"Action, Freeze, Ease" game is the one which we used to play during our lunch break.This game can be played by many people. You don't need any specialized things to play this game. The first thing you have to do is, someone should start the game by giving some theme to the group of people for acting. That can be anything right from the market theme to college theme. The participating people would discuss among themself and when the person who conducts the game says "Action", others should start to act. When the person conducting the game says "Freeze", all the people who are all acting should stop in whatever position they are. They should not move from their position until the person who conducts the game says "Ease" and if someone moves or relaxes himself before he says then he/she has to conduct the next round.This can be played any number of times.

"Passing the Secret" can be played by any number of players. Players are supposed to sit in a circle and the person who starts the game would whisper some sentences in to the ears of the person sitting next to him. That person has to pass on the same sentences to the next person. Finally, when the secret comes to person who started the game, he would say aloud whether the same sentences reached his ears or not. This is just a fun game and no winner or loser. This can be played any number of times.

Hi Nithu
Thanks for the entry. I always enjoyed this passing the secret game, as the last person who will reveal the secret is far away from the secret told by first person!!
