Thread Name: Origins: Concentration (kids' game)
Subject: RE: Origins: Concentration (kids' game)
In 3rd grade we used to play a hand game called 'Concentration'
If I remember it it went something like...

Concentration (clap clap) 64 (clap clap) Do not open (clap clap) the bathroom door (clap clap) if you do (clap clap) you will die (clap clap) concentration (clap clap) 64.

Then we would usually start another hand game, but sometimes we would continue and it would go like...

no repeats (clap clap) or hesitation (clap clap) the topic is
-something-

You'd have to keep in beat (examples)

The topic is, names. Ophelia (clap clap) Alexander (clap clap)

Then you would pass it on to someone else and if you missed the beat you had to sit down (a stand-up circle)

Hehe.
Looking back this is kinda creepy!!
I had no idea what it meant when I was playing it, yikes!
