Give each person present a sheet of paper marked off in twenty squares. In each
square they must get someone present to write his or her name. That will mean
that each person will get the signatures of twenty people, one for each square.
Provide each player with fifteen or twenty small stickers. If the committee could
get white stickers and paint clown faces on them it would help.
Each one is now asked to write his or her name on a small piece of paper. These
are placed in a hat. The leader draws the names from the hat, one at a time. As
the name is called, the person bearing it responds with a lusty “Here” , and raises
the right hand. This serves as an introduction to the group. Each person who has
that name on his paper puts a sticker in the square where it appears.
When any player gets four stickers in a row, either across, down, or diagonally,
he shouts: “Four clowns in a row!” Some suitable award may be made to that
player. Let him read the names of the four.
