Thank you Peace. Sounds like our version might be a simplified form of the game. True-Love says he's never heard of it - he grew up in the American Midwest - from 1938 on. The closest he came was "What's the time Mr Wolf". We played that here in Aus too.
I'll share this discussion with my young actors. We are in a fairly isolated community in Western Victoria - getting less isolated with the internet, of course. No crodiles around for hundreds of miles and miles.

Cheers, Joy
