A new and delightful game has just been invented. It is called
"The game of States." The directions have been written
exclusively for THE GREAT ROUND WORLD; they are as follows:


_DIRECTIONS_

This game may be played by four, six, or eight players. Two players toss
up for the first choice of partners; the winner also has the right for his
side to be "call" or to "reply."

After sides are chosen the winner of the toss consults with his side, and
they decide whether they will "call" or "reply." "Call" is considered the
better position.

The game is played with a map of the United States made of perfectly plain
pasteboard with each State a separate piece, and without names or marks of
any kind on the pieces.

This map should be large enough to have Rhode Island about one inch long,
and the game should be played around a table with the sides named North,
South, East, and West.

The side which "calls" takes all of the States in a box. When "time" is
called by the "reply" side, the "calls" must put a State on the table, and
the "replys" must name it and give the position it occupies before the
time-keeper of the "calls" can count 25; if the name or position is not
correctly given, the "calls" must themselves name the State and its
position, and place it on the table in about the position it will occupy
when all the pieces are in place; if they do this, they score.

For instance: The State of Massachusetts is put out, and the "replys" name
it "Massachusetts - Northeastern part," and count one. This is continued
until the entire map is complete.

As maps may be obtained which have the Great Lakes also cut out, it is
great fun to see the mistakes made.

The "calls" or "replys" will frequently in playing it turn a state upside
down; this counts against the side making the mistake.

The game may be varied by putting one State on the table and calling for
"next North," "next South," "next East," etc., when the name of the State
occupying that position must be correctly given.

The side having the greatest number of points wins the game.
